Friday Film Fest
The Friday Film Fest invites you to another season of German cinema, offering unique insights into German language, culture, history, and current events through the lenses of some of the German-speaking world’s best directors.
Held in the gemütlichen Ratskeller – the cozy bottom floor of the German Society – each evening starts with dinner, dessert, and a bi-lingual introduction to the film. Commentary is provided, often including background information, analysis, criticism, and the directors’ larger body of work. Films are selected from the early German "golden era" of cinema to contemporary works. Afterwards, participants can take part in an English-language discussion. Most films are shown in German with English subtitles or German with German subtitles, see the schedule below for more details.
This year’s festival offers a wide variety of contemporary films and themes from which to choose. We hope you will come along for another year of thought-provoking art and exploration.
