»Filmfest Oldenburg joins Film Festival Summit in Paris«

Festival director Torsten Neumann is one of the speakers at the prestigious international gathering of film festival programmers in Paris. He was invited onto the panel “The Art & Science of Programming Film Festivals” on April 3rd. Neumann is joined by the festival directors of Venice, Moscow and Milan, who will offer their insights into selection processes and maintaining high quality programming. The audience can expect to receive insights into the art of creating great festival programs and insider information about how films are selected into the different festivals. The invitation of Torsten Neumann is yet another proof for the international standing of Oldenburg Film Festival and Neumann’s longstanding commitment to support and promote independent film making.

The “International Film Festival Summit” (IFFS) is the most important international organization speaking for film festivals. Since 2002 it aims to bring together the movers and shakers of the film festival scene with prominent members of the film industry. It has become a hub for co-operations and networks and a breeding ground for new trends among festival programming. The IFFS 2012 is held from April 3rd to April 4th in Paris.

»Oldenburg at the Soho Film Festival New York«

This year will see another Oldenburg screening at the Soho International Film Festival, showcasing a highlight from the German section of last year’s Oldenburg Film Festival. In 2011 Thomas Stiller and Liv Lisa Fries presented “She Deserved It” to an enraptured audience. This year it is Tim Trachte’s psycho thriller “You Don’t Wanna Know”, which gets the chance with the New York film fans. Andreas Lust and Sophie von Kessel star in the gripping and intense tale, about the crumbling facades of bourgeois life and the limits of personal morality. Before the main feature the award winning short “Kinderspiel” by Lars Kornhoff is shown, dealing with the troubles of a teenage father fighting for his rights. The screening starts on April 17th on 3.30pm. Beforehand, on April 14th on 11am, Robbie Bryan’s “Choose” is shown in a short film selection.

On April 18th 6.30pm, Henry Barrial’s “Pig” will see its New York premiere. The bleak sci fi flick about a man without memory waking up bound in a desert, is a masterful look into a not too distant future. April 19th sees a special screening of John Gallagher’s “The Deli”, which had its international premiere 15 years ago in Oldenburg. It will be presented along with the short film “I Love You”, which celebrated its world premiere in Oldenburg last year, and will kick off this event, starting at 9pm.

The Soho International Film Festival runs from April 13th until April 20th at the Sunshine Cinema, 143 East Houston, New York City. For tickets and further information visit:
