The German Consulate General Recommends:
KINO! is back and ready to deliver exciting new German films to New York audiences this April. After more than 30 years at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), the festival branched out into an independent film festival beginning in 2014. Now in its 5th year, KINO!2018 will continue to showcase the vast diversity within contemporary German cinema with a range of compelling, cutting-edge and acclaimed films. This year’s KINO!2018 will be held at the festival’s new venue and NYC’s newest arthouse cinema, Landmark Theatres.
As a special KINO! Centerpiece event for cinephiles, on Monday, April 8th at 8pm, the festival will screen the US premiere of Ewald André Dupont’s 1925 classic silent film VARIETÉ (presented by Bertelsmann) accompanied with live music by pianist Stephen Horne.
The festival’s Opening Night selection IN TIMES OF FADING LIGHT will have its NY premiere on Friday, April 6th at 7:15pm and will be followed by a Q&A discussion with the film’s director Matti Geschonneck.
The festival will host a number of filmmakers and industry guests from Germany who will attend the festival and participate in Q&A discussions after select screenings.
