TELE 5 & #ffmuc: a good fit!

A common love of good movies

TELE 5 & #ffmuc: a good fit!

A love of good movies is what we have in common. That's why TELE 5 and FILMFEST MÜNCHEN have agreed to a long-term, strategic partnership that will be much closer than a sponsor's usual involvement. "We're not just a sponsor. We're festival, too. We wouldn't be TELE 5 if we didn't do things DIFFERENTLY," emphasizes Kai Blasberg, chief executive of TELE 5. Festival director Diana Iljine adds: "TELE 5 has been bringing cinema to television for years. Led by its motto 'Different is better', the station keeps its finger on the pulse of the times, with fresh film series and great movies." There's good chemistry, as you can see in our jointly produced partner video: TELE 5 and #ffmuc — it's a natural alliance!

For the 36th FILMFEST MÜNCHEN in 2018, the Munich TV channel is contributing a complete package with "Wir lieben Kino" ("We love cinema") as its motto. The package consists of the broadcaster's most prominent brands, to each of which the Mathäser cinema has dedicated its own evening:

"Different is better" — TELE 5 brands at #ffmuc!

 On Oskar Rohler's recommendation, two scandalous films that made history will be shown as part of the festival. The scenes of violence in RESERVOIR DOGS and NATURAL BORN KILLERS caused quite a stir when the films came out. Today both are not only cult films, but are also considered classics in their genre.

  • Oliver Kalkofe and Peter Rütten will present two of the "worst movies of all time": KING KONG VS. GODZILLA and IN SEARCH OF THE ULTRA-SEX — each personally re-dubbed by Kalkofe and Rütten!
  • Peter Thorwarth and Christian Zübert, on the other hand, will present German cult films — the "D-movies" BANG BOOM BANG and LAMMBOCK.
  • A musical treat rounds out the program. None other than Thomas Gottschalk and Filmfoniker will present THE BEST MOVIE SONGS OF ALL TIME.

In the partner video by TELE 5 and FILMFEST MÜNCHEN, Gottschalk, an icon of German television, emphasizes: "The whole is more than the sum of its parts." He's right! By televising films shown previously at FILMFEST MÜNCHEN as well as further classics, TELE 5 is already generating excitement about #ffmuc and keeping it going during the festival:
