Many events at the International Film Festival

13.09.12

Red carpet, stars and a real OH BOY gala

Yesterday the 19th Oldenburg International Film Festival kicked off and one cool night of partying later the next great events and an astonishing film program are waiting for the audience.

Oldenburg’s prison opens its doors and invites everyone (including the inmates) to watch an exclusive selection of films and attend a very special concert. The prison is turned into a festival cinema from Friday to Sunday.
Oscar winner Mira Sorvino is honored by receiving her very own star on the OLB Walk of Fame on Friday at 11am. Later that day her latest film Union Square will see its international premier at the festival’s gala night.
Star cinematographer and director Phedon Papamichael receives the German Independence Honorary Award. The award ceremony takes place before the Union Square screening with director Nancy Savoca and Mira Sorvino in attendance.

Director Petter Næss presents his latest film "Into The White" with the protagonists Florian Lukas and David Kross on Saturday.

On Sunday the official Closing Night Ceremony draws the final curtain for this year’s festival from 6pm. The gala screening will be the highlight of the retrospective with the world premiere of Phedon Papamichael’s Lost Angeles. Before the film the winners of the German Independence Award will be announced.
But before it comes to that we still have three days of parties, meeting the stars and of course films, films and more films.
