Together with FFF Bayern and Warner Bros., FILMFEST MÜNCHEN will extend the festival experience far beyond Munich by bringing Helena Hufnagel’s romantic comedy COMMITMENT PHOBIA to movie screens nationwide parallel to its premiere at the Filmfest and prior to its official theatrical release. Theaters across all of Germany will be participating.
As the film celebrates its world premiere at the Munich open-air institution Kino, Mond & Sterne, the virtual presence of the stars will bring the atmosphere of the premiere to all participating cinemas, each of which will create its own individual festive setting and welcome its local audience in its own way.
We aim for this collaborative project to give a further impetus to movie theaters in Germany. In one evening, audiences all across Germany will enjoy a great film together, marvel together, laugh together and later talk about the scenes they liked best.
COMMITMENT PHOBIA is based on the best-selling nonfiction book by Michael Nast. The film was produced in part with funds from the FFF Bavaria. Helena Hufnagel’s second feature film (after EINMAL BITTE ALLES) focuses on the Tinder generation. In this well-cast comedy, Frederick Lau and Luise Heyer are an “odd couple” who play off each other with a lot of verbal wittiness.
Tickets for “FILMFEST MÜNCHEN at Your Cinema” (“FILMFEST MÜNCHEN in Deinem Kino”) will soon be available at all participating cinemas across Germany.
