The 2021 Festival of German Cinema held its first screening event at the Broadway Cinematheque MOMA in Beijing on Dec 3. The festival is organized by German Films and co-organized by the Goethe Institute (China), the Goethe Institute in Beijing (China) and Broadway Cinematheque. Simone Baumann, general manager of German Films, Anke Redl, representative of German Films in China, Clemens Treter of the Goethe Institute in Beijing and filmmaker Jia Zhangke, ambassador of this year's event, expressed their congratulations on the success of the film festival.

The 2021 Festival of German Cinema opened with Maria Schrader's I'm Your Man. Maren Eggert, one of the most promising and talented actors in Germany, won the Silver Bear for best leading actress at the Berlinale for her performance in the film.

This year's film selection panel puts forwards six masterpieces to be screened at the Broadway Cinematheque in Beijing, including Curveball, A Symphony of Noise, Home, Nico and Nuclear Forever.

The Festival of German Cinema has been held annually since 2013 and is now in its ninth year. It has brought new, outstanding German films to Chinese audiences. In this particular year, when the COVID-19 pandemic is ravaging the world, the significance of this film festival will be even greater. Over the next two weeks, let's experience the glamour of German cinema on the big screen.
