Filmfest Hamburg announces first films
A crisis in Europe, a revolution in the Middle East and an election in
the USA. But whilst all this is going on, what is happening in countries
such as Estonia, Serbia or Chile, apart from what we see on the news?
At Filmfest Hamburg around 140 films will provide insights into the
stories, dreams and lifestyles of over 40 countries, large and small
ones, once again.
“For the 20th Filmfest it was very important to
me to show productions from countries and regions that are unknown in
the cinematographic world. It is particularly exciting that Morocco is
represented by multiple productions. We have also put together a Far
East section with contributions from Malaysia, Nepal and many other
countries. I hope that the opening film will also be a surprise –
geographically speaking,”says festival manager Albert Wiederspiel.
