Jürgen Böttcher in Tribute Programme
For the 85th birthday of the filmmaker and painter Jürgen Böttcher alias Strawalde, FILMFEST DRESDEN is devoting one of its three special festival sections this year to him. In two tribute programmes, eight of his most important short films are being screened which document his artistic oeuvre over three decades. The programme premiere is being held in cooperation with the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden, Dresden’s state art collections, and the DEFA Foundation on Thursday 14 April 2016 at 19:00 in the atrium of the Albertinum. The film screening is followed by a moderated discussion with Jürgen Böttcher. Free admission to the evening event.
