The 52nd Hof International Film Festival was 6 days in which the cinema was our absolute focus. Great guests from all over the world presented their films and discussed them with the audience. Barbet Schroeder, the grandmaster of French and international film, gave fascinating insights into his extensive oeuvre – as well as young talents who presented their first projects.
The supporting program HoF PLUS provided insights into and outlooks on what is happening in the film industry. The traditional Hof football match with a home team up against the filmmakers was nerve-wracking until the last second and ended in a 2:2 draw! To relax, there was a proper celebration.
