For its 23rd edition, held from June 25 through July 2, the Filmfest München continues its "New French Cinema" series, with two preview screenings and six as yet unreleased French films programmed.

"Holy Lola" by Bertrand Tavernier and "Me and My Sister" by Alexandra Leclère will be offered their German premieres prior to their commercial release, on August 18 for "Holy Lola" (Prokino) and August 25 for "Me and My Sister" (Arsenal Filmverleih). Bertrand Tavernier will be making the trip to Munich to lead the promotion of his film.
