For the past couple of years, German Cinema has been one of our most anticipated annual festivals. We first found out about the festival in 2013 when we 'accidently' stumbled across it when we were buying tickets for a movie in Blitzmegaplex Paris Van Java. We completely missed the festival in 2014, but last year we managed to see 6 out of the 9 movies they screened. This year, German Cinema 2016 brought 9 more movies for us to watch, free of charge. I watched 6 of them and Afief watched 7.
Just like last year, the festival was also held for 3 days in Ciwalk XXI. The ticket box was opened about an hour before each film started. It gets more and more crowded each year. I think it might be good if they found another venue for next year; with bigger theater and more seats, perhaps?
The six movies I watched were:
But among them, my favourites are Victoria and Lenalove.
This festival kind of makes me wish there were more countries willing to create this kind of festival. There are a few film festivals currently being held by CGV, namely the Koreans and Japanese ones, but they are merely festivals held by CGV and not directly supported by the countries' government.
