"Germany’s second-biggest film fest offers an ideal summer platform for world cinema, cutting-edge German films, and new discoveries while also showcasing young talents. [... ] About a third of Germany’s film industry is based in Munich, making the fest an ideal meet and greet for local and international filmmakers and industry insiders. "
"The Munich Film Festival has again skimmed the cream of Cannes' crop to pack its own lineup, nabbing several Croisette favorites for its 2016 competition."

"A Global Festival for Locals [...] Filmfest München celebrates 34 years of life. It does not aspire to compete with any other famous festival, but it shows an exceptional vitality, because it was born, first of all, to meet the public, who is the real protagonist, parading on the red carpet. [...] This means that Munich has an audience of true fans. A very young audience."
