Filmfest München 2015 To Begin A Day Earlier

More... News-Overview
El festival de cine de Munich es el más grande festival no competitivo en Alemania. Cada verano en medio de una atmósfera relajada tiene lugar en la Rambla del Isar un intensivo diálogo entre cineastas y directores de cine. Aunque se recrea el cine en sus variantes artísticas y culturales, este festival constituye también una plataforma de la industria del cine alemán y su mercado, el cual goza de gran prestigio a nivel internacional.

Le FILMFEST MÜNCHEN est le plus grand festival public non-compétitif d’Allemagne.
Dans une atmosphère de détente, un dialoge intensif entre réalisateurs et cinéastes se tient tous les étés sur les rives de l’Isar. Bien que le film y soit célébré pour son essence artistique et son expression culturelle, le Filmfest München est un marché très populaire, aussi bien sur le plan de l’industrie du film allemand que celui de l’industrie cinématographique internationale
