The different art forms have a lot in common. Music is influenced by cinema and vice-versa, fashion is influenced by paintings, and fine arts have a close relationship with films. Everything is mixed but not stirred and the boundaries are difficult to see when we talk about beauty in any of its forms.
The Filmkunst Wochen is a film festival with an extense program shown in different and special cinemas across the city from 25th July to 15th August. If you missed some of the films shown at the Filmfest now you have a new opportunity at the Filmkunst. The opening film of this edition is Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot the new Gus Van Sant film, shown on 25th July at Neues Maxim, and the closing film will be the new film of Spike Lee, Blackklansman, shown on 15th August at ABC. Both films will be screened in English with German Subtitles.
This year is the 100th anniversary of Ingmar Bergman‘s birth and the Filmkunst Wochen will offer a retrospective about his films (mainly in German). They will also show some of the Wim Wender‘s films and some of the best films of all the times like the combo Un Chien Andalou of Buñuel and Dalí and the first Cocteau film Le Sand d’un Poète at Theatiner on 7th August. They will also have space for the best independent films of this year, like Call me by your name, The Darkest Hour, I, Tonya, Lady Bird, Phantom Thread or Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, all of them shown in Original Version (English).
If you are Spanish or Latin American, or know some Spanish, they have also a small section with Spanish films shown in Original Version with German Subtitles with movies like Campeones, the last Javier Fesser film, on 25th July at Isabella Kinos. Three weeks full of cinema and art await you in the city!
