  HOW ABOUT ADOLF? a film by Sönke Wortmann  

What should have been a wonderful evening quickly escalates when Thomas announces he and his pregnant girlfriend are planning to name their son Adolf. This scandalous news leads to ruthless confrontation, with all kinds of secrets coming out…

Director Sönke Wortmann (“Pope Joan”, “The Miracle of Bern”) deftly helms this incredible, did-he-just-say-that story of a family dinner gone awry, in which German guilt and angst over the Nazi past burst out into the open willy-nilly. HOW ABOUT ADOLF? is an intelligent and fun social satire in which witty dialogue and perfect timing keep the audience on the edge of their seats. A breakout hit at the German box office.

  GOOD GIRL GONE BAD a film by Petra Lüschow  

In 1980s Germany, 17-year-old Ursula falls for her charismatic teacher Siegfried and thus gets involved with the peace movement. Siegfried‘s believe in free love, however, turns the entire village upside down…

An authentic and highly entertaining dive into the eighties in Germany, where – during the peak of the Cold War – open relationships were put to the test and the environmental movement gained steam. Anna Florkowski delivers a stunning performance as Ursula, a free-spirited and modern girl, born into a conservative family, still bound in the hidebound patterns of female self-restraint. Florian Stetter ("Beloved Sisters", "Stations of the Cross") and Thorsten Merten ("Grill Point") round out the cast. Hermann Beyer ("Dark", "The Elementary Particles") has a hilarious turn as the girl’s grandfather, stoically hushing up his presumably Nazi past in this surprising debut.

  THE REFORMER - ZWINGLI, A LIFE'S PORTRAIT a film by Stefan Haupt  

The young priest Ulrich Zwingli makes waves with his increasing attacks on the Catholic Church's excesses. However, he almost triggers a civil war when he marries the young widow Anna and tries to end the prevailing system of fear and oppression.

Like Luther and Calvin, Zwingli is one of the leading reformers of the Catholic Church. His revolutionary ideas focused on the church, but also didn't stop at the state, the military and society. Award-winning director Stefan Haupt („The Circle“, „Elisabeth Kübler-Ross”, “Utopia Blues”) directs the gripping true story with historical accuracy and emotional depth. Maximilian Simonischek („Hindenburg: The Last Flight“, „Divine Order“) delivers a stunning performance as Zwingli - one of Europe’s most courageous, religious men. Also starring are Stefan Kurt (“Dreileben”) and Anatole Taubman (“Quantum of Solace”, “P.O.W.”, “Servants”).

  CUT OFF a film by Christian Alvart

Genre expert Christian Alvart ("Pandorum", "Antibodies", "Nick: Off Duty") helms this gripping thriller in spectacular locations with a stellar cast: Moritz Bleibtreu ("The Baader Meinhof Complex", "Run Lola Run"), Jasna Fritzi Bauer ("Barbara"), Lars Eidinger ("Clouds of Sils Maria", "Everyone Else") and Fahri Yardim ("Almanya: Welcome to Germany", "Nick: Off Duty").

  SCARBOROUGH a film by Barnaby Southcombe  

In a once glamorous Scarborough hotel, away from prying eyes, two couples laugh, quarrel, and make love as they come to terms with the impossibility of their forbidden love. At barely 16 years old, two of them are still at school... and the others, their teachers.

Part love story and probing social commentary, Scarborough explores the impulsive nature of forbidden love and its unpredictable consequences. The dilapidated charm of the Victorian hotel makes for an interesting counterpoint with the teenage lovers’ youthful optimism and careless passion. Directed by Barnaby Southcombe (“I, Anna”), the film stars Jessica Barden (“The End of the F***ing World”, “The Lobster”), Jodhi May (“Ginger & Rosa”), Jordan Bolger (“iBoy”, “Peaky Blinders”) and Edward Hogg (“Imagine”, “Anonymous”) in the lead roles, and is produced by Christopher Granier-Deferre (“Lady Macbeth”, “The Levelling”, “Apostasy”).

  BLAME GAME a film by Philipp Leinemann  

Intelligence expert Martin Behrens supplies information leading to a U.S. drone strike on a wanted terrorist. Then his lover Aurice - a smart political journalist - is killed in a terrorist attack, presumably a payback for the drone strike. Martin starts to investigate on his own...

A gripping political thriller with tour-de-force performances by A-listers Ronald Zehrfeld ("Phoenix", "The People vs Fritz Bauer"), Alexander Fehling („Homeland“, "Labyrinth of Lies") and Axel Prahl ("Grill Point").

  303 a film by Hans Weingartner  

On the way from Berlin to Portugal in her rusty „303“ camper van, young biology student Jule picks up hitchhiker Jan. While having intense conversations about everything and the world, they try not to fall in love.

Hans Weingartner ("The Edukators", "Hut in the Woods") sends his protagonists on an exciting road trip across Europe, striking the nerve of the times in his dialogues. Socio-political depth and a tender love story meld into a captivating, light-handed, profoundly moving boy-meets-girl story.
