FFDD24 Preview: Regional Focus - Films from Post-Unification Germany

The “Securing the Audio-Visual Heritage in Saxony” (SAVE) innovative project, which is promoted by SLUB (Saxon State Library – Dresden State and University Library) and the Saxony Film Association, is revealing numerous pearls from Saxony’s audio-video heritage during FILMFEST DRESDEN in its regional focus series. Entitled “As Though It Were Yesterday – Films from the 1990s”, highlights are being screened from Dresden-based filmmakers Tilo Schiemenz and Bernd Kilian’s artistic oeuvre.

Both filmmakers have already presented works at earlier film festival editions. On the one hand, the years after the fall of the Berlin Wall bestowed new creative freedoms on the Dresden-based filmmakers while, on the other hand, they provided them with a vast amount of material. Contemporary witnesses from that time together with those who came after will now have an opportunity to take a nostalgic and enthralled, cheerful and perturbed look at works from this era preserved cinematically.


You can see all programmes at the 36 FILMFEST DRESDEN from 16 to 21 April 2024.

Advance ticket sales start on 26 March 2024.
