IN FOCUS: GERMANY

The German film industry will be playing a pivotal role at #PÖFF24 as the festival is glad to announce a partnership with German Films. The programme will include a series of events throughout the Black Nights programme and its sub-events, including the German Films initiatives Next Generation Short Tiger and Face To Face. As usual, the programme will be highlighted by a tailor-made film programme, screened at Black Nights.

Black Nights Film Festival has enjoyed fruitful cooperation with both German Films and Goethe-Institut over the years that has given birth to a row of special events, the New German Films programme that features in the Black Nights programme annually and tens of high-quality films that have premiered and won awards at the festival.

The full programme will be announced in September.
