Save the date for the 19th Berlin French Film Week
From November 27 through December 4, and for the nineteenth year running, the Institut Français in Berlin and UniFrance will offer audiences in the German capital the chance to celebrate French cinema at the Berlin French Film Week, which will feature an exciting array of events and numerous festival guests.
This year, 17 French films will be presented to Berlin audiences in preview screenings at eight separate venues. The festival works hand in hand with German distributors to ensure the promotion of these films prior to their commercial release. As always, the event provides an opportunity to highlight the richness and diversity of French cinema, which is highly appreciated across the Rhine (almost 3 million admissions registered in 2018).
The Berlin Film Week will open with a screening of Les Misérables by Ladj Ly at the Kino International held in the presence of the film's leading cast members Djebril Zonga and Almamy Kanouté. The event will close one week later with a screening of Someone, Somewhere by Cédric Klapisch at the Cinéma Paris, with the director in attendance.
Reda Kateb, Vincent Cassel, Éric Toledano, and Olivier Nakache will also travel to Berlin to present The Specials, as will Cédric Le Gallo to present The Shiny Shrimps, Justine Triet and Sandra Hüller for Sibyl, Nils Tavernier for The Ideal Palace, Gilles Legrand for Best Intentions, Manele Labidi for Arab Blues, and Stéphane Batut for Burning Ghost.
In addition to this program, the Institut Français will present screenings of a selection of films that have not yet secured a distributor in Germany, including Real Love by Claire Burger, School Life by Grand Corps Malade and Mehdi Idir, and An Impossible Love by Catherine Corsini, as well as two films aimed at young audiences, Raoul Taburin and Sophie's Misfortunes.
An event that features around 40 French titles in total, the Berlin Film Week will be completed by the Gaumont Program, which includes nine films, the Francophone Program with four films, and the presentation of the series "Les Sauvages".
