Moviegoers are in for a special treat as the Goethe-Institut Philippinen and SM Cinema present the 4th German Film Week with an exciting line-up of 12 critically-acclaimed German films at SM City Manila and SM Megamall.
This year’s German Film Week is especially meaningful as it commemorates the 30th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall. To commemorate this historical event, half of the festival’s programming will be dedicated to films offering perspectives of life in East and West Germany during the divide.
These include this year’s opening film Balloon (Ballon, 2018), an enthralling drama based on actual events about two families and their plan to escape from East Germany to the West with a homemade hot air balloon. The film was awarded 2019 Best Feature Film at the Washington DC Film Festival.
Also included in this specially-curated program for the 30th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall are must-see films namely Berlin Blues, Good Bye, Lenin, Gundermann, The Lives of Others, and Barbara.
This year’s movie selection offers moviegoers a glimpse into German culture and history, and is sure to delight film enthusiasts young and old, and romance, comedy, and action fans. Not to be missed are award-winning German films 25km/h, 100 Things, A Regular Woman, All about Me, Cold Feet, and The Keeper.
Amazing surprises also await moviegoers at SM City Manila and SM Megamall with the Watch ‘n Win contest. Moviegoers can simply join the quiz and get a chance to be the lucky winner of an all-expense roundtrip to Germany.
Tickets to the German Film Week are at P100 for all films, with a special discounted price of P50 for students. The premiere night on November 6 is free and open to all on a first-come-first-served basis while tickets for the rest of the Manila screenings may be purchased at SM City Manila and SM Megamall cinema ticket booths.
The German Film Week, which runs until today, is also supported by the Film Development Council of the Philippines and is one of the many exciting cultural events at SM Cinema.
