19th German Film Festival

German Film Festival

The 19th edition of this festival highlights 20 works from contemporary German cinema, all screened in Singapore for the first time.

Curated by Goethe-Institut programmers and themed around the search for identity, the selection includes titles like WWII drama Phoenix and psycho thriller Like a Cast Shadow, alongside other names such as BabaiLola on the Pea, and Who am I.

The massive hit Head Full of Honey kicks off the line-up with a poignant tale of dementia and its effect on the relationship between a grandfather and his granddaughter. And also keep a lookout for a tribute to German filmmaker Rainer Werner Fassbinder – the festival is set to screen eight films by the legendary director.

The 19th German Film Festival is at Cathay Cineplexes, The Projector and National Museum of Singapore from Nov 5-15.
