From 27 October to 1 November 2020, the Film:ReStored film heritage festival will showcase a wide-ranging programme of screenings, behind-the-scenes reports and panel discussions from a distinctly European perspective. Newly restored classics such as Kuhle Wampe (Germany, 1932, directed by Slatan Dudow) and Georg Wilhelm Pabst’s Don Quixote (France, 1933) will be presented, made possible by transnational cooperation between archives. In addition to such classics of European cinematic heritage, new discoveries are also on the agenda. A special highlight is the premiere of the restoration of Sylvester (Germany, 1924, directed by Lupu Pick), to be accompanied by a live orchestra. On Friday, 30 October 2020, the Association of German Film Archives will award its film prize as part of the festival.
With funding from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
