FilmSchoolFest Munich 2015

The annual FilmSchoolFest is taking place in Munich from November 15-21, 2015. Celebrating the work of young filmmakers, the international event will present around sixty short films to the Munich public.

The entire program is available online, and I’ve taken a look at a few shorts in advance – a couple of which I really enjoyed:

Safe Space
A 13 minute German film, though predomintely in English, the film deals with refugees and protests, and focuses on Sara, who has been sexually assaulted by a refugee. The situation takes on a public dimension when the group of protestors realise that it could be used by racist groups to promote xenophobia in Germany. Directed by the young German Zora Rux, the hard-hitting short was presented at Cannes earlier this year.

A completely different film to Safe Space, Lure is a 4 minute, extremely cute stop-motion animated film about a little boy who encounters a wheelchair-bound woman. A dog brings them together – but will they become friends?

Tickets can be bought online (5€ each), and picked up at the FilmMuseum in advance.

Which film are you most looking forward to catching?
