Filmfest Hamburg

Filmfest Hamburg

More than 140 international feature and documentary films are celebrating their German, European or world premiere in altogether eight sections at the 16th Filmfest Hamburg. The many facets of the programme range from cinematically highbrow arthouse films to innovative mainstream cinema, from road movies to melodrama, from comedies and westerns to thrillers and children’s films.
Filmfest Hamburg presents the debut films of young German and international filmmakers alongside films by famous and infamous directing giants of international cinema.

Academy Award winners such as Clint Eastwood, Jodie Foster and Michael Moore, arthouse filmmakers such as Aki Kaurismäki, Jim Jarmusch, Peter Greenaway and Wim Wenders, Dogma-founder Lars von Trier and German directors such as Fatih Akin, Ayse Polat and Oliver Hirschbiegel represent the festival’s entire – and often controversial – artistic plenitude.

In 2008, Filmfest Hamburg will launch the following sections: Agenda 08, Nordlichter (‘Northern Lights’), Vitrina, Voilà!, TV Spielfilme im Kino (‘Made-for-TV Movies in the Cinema’), eurovisuell and Portugal Deluxe. Also in the CinemaxX Dammtor the children’s and youth film festival will present itself under the new name ‘Michel Kinder- und JugendFilmfest’ under the direction of Hajo Schäfer.
