The festival opens at Luna Leederville with an international premiere ‘Next Door’, a black comedy. The opening night reception will include a glass of wine and German delicacies. Tickets to opening night are $38 for members and $42 for general admission.
We were invited along to Palace Cinemas, Raine Square for a showing of one of the featured films from the festival, ‘The Audition’. The film (shown in German and French with English subtitles) is a drama about a violin teacher, Anna who is trapped in the pursuit of success. Taking on a new student in whom she sees remarkable talent, Anna is driven by her perfectionism and her obsession with his progress, and this impacts on her relationships with her family at home. The film delves into the study of relationships and Anna’s inability to accept the people surrounding her for who they are.
The German Film Festival starts 3rd June and runs until 20th June.
