2001 :: Before Keira was Keira

A year before her breakout role in »Bend It Like Beckham« launched her to international stardom, the 18 year-old actress came to Oldenburg to present the German Premiere of 2010s »The Hole«.  Travelling for the first time unaccompanied by a parent, the young starlet immediately engaged both audiences & critics.  Five years later, Keira Knightley would be nominated for her first Oscar.

»Das Filmfest Oldenburg gilt zusammen mit Venedig und Toronto als eines der wichtigsten Herbstfestivals für unabhängiges Kino.«
