In 2016, German Films launched a campaign promoting a new wave of German cinema achievements to international audiences and to showcase exceptional German talent worldwide. The initiative - FACE TO FACE WITH GERMAN FILMS - shines a spotlight on some of the most influential German talents currently working in the industry, who represent just some of the many dynamic 'faces' of German filmmaking today.
The first year of the campaign was launched during the BFI London Film Festival in October 2016 and featured the actresses Paula Beer, Liv Lisa Fries, Sandra Hüller, Julia Jentsch, Saskia Rosendahl, and Lilith Stangenberg.
The campaign is moving forward in its second year with the support of six of Germany’s most exciting male actors: Volker Bruch, Alexander Fehling, Louis Hofmann, Jannis Niewöhner, Tom Schilling and Ronald Zehrfeld and will be presented in May 2017 during the Festival de Cannes.
