German Film Abroad – a Laughing Stock, a Marginal Phenomenon, a Dream for the Future?

Academy Discussions

German film is underrepresented abroad and receives little recognition. Is it the quality of the films, the subject matter and themes, the lack of marketing or the diverging expectations of international audiences? Jeanine Meerapfel talks about reasons and solution strategies with her guests from the film scene.

In discussion:
Simone Baumann (Managing Director of German Films)
Martin Blaney (Correspondent for Germany and Eastern Europe, Screen International)
Matthijs Wouter Knol (CEO and Director of the European Film Academy)
Jeanine Meerapfel (Filmmaker and President of the Akademie der Künste)
Julien Razafindranaly (Head of Sales at Films Boutique)
Moderation: Andreas Kilb (Film Critic and Culture Correspondent in Berlin)
