Now in its third year of bringing some of Germany’s greatest independent films to the U.S., KINO! 2016 will be kicking off their acclaimed festival at Cinema Village in downtown New York from April 7-14, and they have a wide selection of high quality films this year that you won’t want to miss.
KINO! 2016 will be kicking off their festival with the US premier of The Weather Inside, a drama centered around the refugee crisis in the Middle East, telling a story that “questions the role of the media and public relations in conflict zones and exposes how refugee aid sometimes benefits only those who need it the least.” The film’s director, Isabelle Stever, and lead actress Maria Furtwängler will be present for the premier.
This year’s festival will also be highlighting women in filmmaking with four of the films being made by some of Germany’s rising women in cinema.
In total, eleven feature-length films will be screened during the 8-day event. Check out the KINO! 2016 festival page for times and locations for the films featured below:
