A new format for premieres, “FILMFEST MÜNCHEN at Your Cinema”, debuts with the screening of Helena Hufnagel’s comedy COMMITMENT PHOBIA in numerous cinemas throughout Bavaria and the rest of Germany on July 6 — parallel to the film’s grand premiere in Munich.

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.

Diana Iljine, festival director, FILMFEST MÜNCHEN

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.

A pig is trained to be a puppy, an alpaca is a loyal family member, cows and fish sing, and a poodle is given an award at Cannes. Take it from the horse’s mouth: these animal roles in some of the films at FILMFEST MÜNCHEN make us squeal with delight, but they also make us think about our relationship to other living beings and our entire ecosystem.

Tonight, Dominik Graf’s new TV movie SHADOWS OF THE PAST premieres at the Gloria Palast. It’s an artfully layered puzzle straddling different timelines, in which the question of true identity leads to surprising answers. Additionally, PERFORMER by Oliver Grüttner will be screened today for the first time. In this film, a teenager toys with the idea of going on a killing spree — but does he really want to do that? And who exactly is Rose in SECRET NAME?
