There will again be a wide range of German films in the program when the Venice International Film Festival opens its doors for the 71st time on 27 August 2014 as the world's oldest existing film festival. "The Cut" by Fatih Akin (DE/FR/IT/RU/PL/JO/TR, bombero international, Pandora Filmproduktion, corazón international) will have its world premiere in the Venezia 71 Competition. The competition for the Golden Lion also includes the debut film by the German-Turkish filmmaker Kaan Müjdeci "Sivas" (TR/DE, Müjdeci GmbH) and two other German co-productions. The director Philip Gröning is a member of the jury. The Venice Classics will be presenting "From Caligari to Hitler" by Rüdiger Suchsland (Looks Filmproduktionen). The up-and-coming generation of German filmmakers was also invited: "The Council of Birds," the first feature film by Timm Kröger (Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg), will screen as a world premiere in the competition of the International Film Critics’ Week. The independent sidebar has also invited the German co-production "Flapping in the Middle of Nowhere" by Diep Hoang Nguyen (VN/FR/NO/DE, Filmallee) which was financed with support from the Berlinale's World Cinema Fund.

Mariette Rissenbeek, managing director of German Films: “As was also the case last year, there is a very strong presence for German cinema at the Lido, which makes us very happy. Congratulations to all of the filmmakers and their teams!“
