Hamburg Film Festival will take place for the 28th time in 2020. Every year in autumn it thrills over 40,000 cinema fans in ten days on ten screens with around 140 national and international feature and documentary films as world premieres, European premieres or German premieres.
In ten permanent and further annually changing sections, the programme spectrum ranges from sophisticated art house films to innovative mainstream cinema. But not only cinematic gems, audience successes and world premieres can be seen and enjoyed in large format: Participating actors and directors honour the Hanseatic city and make the film experience even more vivid by answering questions and talking about motives and shooting experiences.
In addition to new discoveries in the world of cinema, a number of actors, directors, producers and other film-makers are expected on the red carpet as every year.
A free supporting programme to the festival will take place on Allende-Platz in front of the Abaton cinema. Among other things, workshop talks, panel discussions and events of the Michel" Kinder und Jugend Filmfest" will be offered here. New since 2014 is the Unplugged film festival, where young musicians transform the tent into a concert hall. And the after-show parties will not be missing this year either.
Further information on the 28th Hamburg Film Festival 2020 will be available here soon.
Review of the 27th Filmfest Hamburg 2019
In the Abaton cinema, a road movie about the search for a dog and the fateful meeting between a boy and a homeless man awaited you with Bruno, among others, and the comedy Brother Heart accompanied a woman in search of her place in the world. In Metropolis Kino, the French independent drama As Happy As Possible portrayed a youth between resignation and rebellion, and Scattered Night, a South Korean family drama nominated for the NDR Young Talent Award, awaited the audience. Studio Kino showed Sag mir wer ich bin -Tell Me Who I Am, a documentary musical about how escape and loss of identity can look like.
