Idol Evenings

It seems as if the films have kept rolling in since MUNICH FOUND reinstated the movie page. And from June 26 to July 3 Munich hosts Germany’s second largest and most audience-friendly international film festival. Movie lovers, international stars, non-mainstream artists, industry professionals and tomorrow’s talent will come together in a celebration of motion pictures from around the world. The festival will be screening highlights from Hollywood to Helsinki, the latest productions from Beirut to Beijing— roughly 180 films from 35 countries. There’s something for everyone, from new forms of artistic expression and adventures in cross-cultural understanding to just plain old movie magic. The 22nd Filmfest München will also be incorporating something new this year: the participating cinemas will be situated along the Munich Movie Mile, all within walking distance of each other, enhancing the festival’s cordial atmosphere.
