Following last year’s successful event, the IFI is pleased to once again collaborate with the Goethe-Institut Irland in presenting this short selection of the best in contemporary German cinema.

Whereas last year focused on emerging talent, IFI Kinofest 2014 takes a more rounded approach. New directors are represented by the opening film, Bettina Blümner’s Broken Glass Park. The most acclaimed German films of the year to have played on the festival circuit, Stations of the Cross (which will open at the IFI later in the year) and Jack, receive their Irish premieres. Grand masters of German cinema also feature in this year’s line-up, with the inclusion of Edgar Reitz’s Home from Home: Chronicle of a Vision, the latest episode in the Heimat saga. Finally, we’re particularly thrilled to present an incredibly rare screening of Volker Schlöndorff’s Baal with Rainer Werner Fassbinder. This wide-ranging choice of films serves to highlight the continuing richness of German cinema. (Introduction by Kevin Coyne.)

We are pleased to welcome producer Stefanie Groß to the opening film, Broken Glass Park, on October 9th at 18.30. This screening will be followed by a reception courtesy of the German Embassy Dublin.

Presented in partnership with the Goethe-Institut Irland.
