6TH FACE TO FACE WITH GERMAN FILMS - THE FILMMAKERS
Our FACE TO FACE campaign will once again be presenting personalities from the German film industry to the international film world during 2021. Films and series are created through teamwork - that's why German Films is highlighting a wider variety of film professions in its new FILMMAKERS campaign. Here are the Faces for 2021:
- FREYA ARDE, composer - ULÉ BARCELOS, costume designer - SARAH BLAßKIEWITZ, director - TUA EL-FAWWAL, actress - ANNEKATRIN HENDEL, director - LORNA ISHEMA, actress - LAILA PETERSEN-JAMA, storyboarder - JIEUN YI, cinematographer
How diverse is the German film industry? Does it truly represent the wealth of facets, ideas and strengths in society? This question is being asked more and more, and not infrequently with sobering results. But what consequences can the industry draw from the criticism that has been levelled at it for years now – by people with a migration or refugee background, black people, indigenous people and people of color, representatives of people with disabilities, and those fighting for gender equality? German Films asked 52 different players in the German film industry to provide information about these and other questions.
