MIC Mini Update:Oberhausen Last Auckland Screening

MIC Mini Update:Oberhausen Last Auckland Screening


One last chance tonight to see highlights of the Oberhausen Film Fest - A rare opportunity to see A-List Festival short film...

MIC and the Goethe Institut present



Tonight! Tuesday 1 June 6.30pm, Rialto Cinemas, Newmarket, Auckland

Introduced by Festival Director Dr Lars Henrik Gass. Far removed from the undemanding uniformity which meanwhile pervades mainstream feature films, the international competition program offers a wide diversity of genres and innovations. Among these contributions from six countries are humorous films that make us laugh, distressing films that make us pensive, animated cartoon films for every taste and documentaries thematizing the gender relationships, violence and growing up. Although many of the films manage completely without language, they do in fact communicate with each other and in the end you cannot fail to notice the thread that runs through them all. We invite you to take this long and exciting voyage of discovery through the great cinema of short films.
