in this year Filmkunstfest Mecklenburg-Vorpommern presents around 160 short and feature films. The organizers announced this at noon in Schwerin.
“Lunch Hour” by Lars Jessen on the show
The feature film “Mittagsstunden” by Lars Jessen is based on the novel by Dörte Hansen that will be shown in cinemas on September 22, and the documentary “Stille Sommer” about festivals in the Corona epidemic: these are just two films from the series “Scheduled in MV”. It can be tried at Filmkunstfest before the cinema premiere.
In the feature film competition, ten new productions from Germany, Austria and Switzerland traditionally compete for the main prize of the festival – a flying bull.
