Last year’s edition of KINO! in April was so successful that the festival will return to the spring dates again this year so that New Yorker film buffs can enjoy the latest German films early in the year. With daily screenings from 8-14 April, KINO! 2016 takes place again in the Cinema Village, one of the city’s leadings arthouses, where New York audiences know to find the latest in award-winning foreign films. Programmed by an independent jury of leading industry professionals — Ian Stimler (distributor), Marian Masone (film curator, festival advisor) and Karl Rozemeyer (film journalist) — the festival presents new German films ranging from thought-provoking features, moving documentaries and award-winning shorts in the presence of German directors and filmmakers.
