More than a dozen French artists attend the Munich Film Festival

The 35th Munich International Film Festival will take place from June 22 through July 1, and this year a large French delegation will attend the event to present fifteen French films, led by Bright Sunshine In, the latest film by Claire Denis, which will open the festival.

Created in 1981, the Filmfest München, one of the most popular film festivals in Germany, and hugely supported by distributors, presents more than 200 films each year, most of which are German, European, or international premieres.

Retrospectives, homages, and master classes are organized: hence Claire Denis will meet with audiences this year during a Filmmakers Live of 45 minutes, open to the public. And two meetings concerned with new trends in French cinema will bring together Rayhana, Michel Hazanavicius, and Florence Gastaud (June 6 at 5pm), and Julien Samani, Fiona Gordon, Dominique Abel, and Lucas Belvaux (June 30 at 5pm).

The festival attracts 70,000 spectators each year, along with 600 journalists and 1000 film professionals, the great majority of which are German cinema industry professionals.

Bernhard Karl became the artistic director of the festival this year.
