Ger­man Cur­rents San Diego cel­e­brates its 3rd Ger­man Film Fes­ti­val on Oc­to­ber 5 and 6, 2013 at the Mu­seum of Pho­to­graphic Arts in Bal­boa Park. The 2013 Fes­ti­val has been moved un­der the aus­pices of the Ger­man Amer­i­can San Diego Foun­da­tion, formed in Jan­uary 2013 by a group of Ger­man and Amer­i­can com­pa­nies from var­i­ous in­dus­tries with the mis­sion to con­nect the Ger­man Amer­i­can com­mu­nity through in­no­va­tion, cul­ture, and busi­ness. The Foun­da­tion has filed for 501 (c)(3) sta­tus. As in past years, the Fes­ti­val is col­lab­o­rat­ing with the Hon­orary Con­sul of the Fed­eral Repub­lic of Ger­many in San Diego, Ger­man Amer­i­can Cham­ber of Com­merce Cal­i­for­nia, and the Goethe In­sti­tut Los An­ge­les. This part­ner­ship cre­ates a dy­namic plat­form to bring Ger­man cul­tural achieve­ment to the at­ten­tion of an in­ter­na­tional au­di­ence. A big “Thank you/Danke schön” goes to our 2011 and 2012 Ger­man Film Fes­ti­val spon­sors who made it pos­si­ble for us to ex­pose San Die­gans to the art and range of Ger­man film­mak­ing. A list of 2013 award win­ning Ger­man films will be re­leased in Au­gust of this year. Films will be shown in Ger­man with English sub­ti­tels. Our Fes­ti­val week-end will start with an award-win­ning open­ing night film and re­cep­tion on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 5, at 6:30 p.m. On Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 6, start­ing at 1:30 p.m., we will show three films, in­clud­ing a chil­dren’s and/or youth film. Work­ing in part­ner­ship with the Goethe In­sti­tut Los An­ge­les, we are also plan­ning to bring ac­tors and/or di­rec­tors to the Fes­ti­val. We will keep you in­formed as we se­lect the Ger­man Film Fes­ti­val 2013 screen­ings and look for­ward to see­ing you at the movies in Oc­to­ber!
