German Films returns to London’s Regent Street Cinema to bring you FACE TO FACE WITH GERMAN TALENT: THE GERMAN FILM WEEKEND from Friday 20 – Sunday 22 September 2019.

The impressive programme of six critical and festival favourites is curated by film critic and host of Girls On Film podcast, Anna Smith, and will bring you “face to face” with some of Germany’s hottest on-screen talent. Including some of the latest festival, film and series highlights from Germany, the line-up showcases bittersweet coming-of age-stories to powerful relationship dramas and gripping thrillers.

Launched in 2016, the FACE TO FACE WITH GERMAN FILMS campaign shines a spotlight on the most influential individuals currently working in the German screen industries and represents just some of the many dynamic ‘faces’ of German filmmaking today as well as celebrating current trends in the German entertainment industry, promoting German content to international audiences and fostering an awareness of modern German storytelling and styles.

To celebrate the special weekend, we are giving one lucky winner two tickets to a film screening of their choice.

The six films screening during the GERMAN FILM WEEKEND are:

LOST ONES (Opening night / Q&A with actress Maria Dragus) by Felix Hassenfratz

THE MASTER BUTCHER (Q&A with Jonas Nay) by Uli Edel

CUT OFF by Christian Alvart

About the author

There’s a lot of music out there - good music. At Essentially Pop our remit is that we cover music that deserves to be heard, with a particular focus on independent artists. That doesn't mean we won't cover your old favourites - rather we hope to give you some new favourites as well.

We no longer accept unpaid PR agency work. We believe the creative arts have value, and this includes writing. As always, we will write about artists who contact us - or who we contact - for free - but we can no longer work free of charge for PR agencies. We work hard, we put in a lot of hours writing, and we ask that you respect that. Contact us for our very reasonable rates.
