SCHLINGEL was visiting Tel Aviv
In the beginning of the year the International Film Festival SCHLINGEL was invited to Tel Aviv. Together with project coordinator, Gritt Langer, the director of IFF SCHLINGEL, Michael Harbauer, was speaking with members of the Goethe-Institut about plans to organise a SCHLINGEL Matinee in Israel. Furthermore, it is intended to also involve members of the International Children’s Film Festival in Tel Aviv and the Israel Film Fund.
Initial point of the meeting was the 50th anniversary of diplomatic efforts between Germany and Israel, which is celebrated this year. The overall objective of the journey is a SCHLINGEL Matinee, which will take place during the Tel Aviv Film Festival in the beginning of July. In return Israeli productions will be screened during the 20th festival edition of SCHLINGEL in October 2015.
For many years, SCHLINGEL and the Goethe-Institut have been partners for distributing German films abroad. In this respect, the festival was presenting national productions for example in Canada, China, Russia and Uzbekistan.
