Film & future programme

Just like the music business, the film industry is faced with digital change, streaming technologies and changing consumer behaviour. The programme strand Film & Future on Friday, 20 September, is taking on the challenges related to these changes. In cooperation with European Film Market’s future platform EFM Horizon, Reeperbahn Festival will start the new programme with a keynote interview with Hollywood film star Matt Dillon ("Crash", "There's something about Mary", "Wayward Pines" and many more, US, photo), in which the actor and director will share his personal views on the trends in the film landscape and talk about his new music film project. Afterwards, there will be panels and discussions on:
Moreover, the public programme will comprise all cineastic formats: Film, short films, music videos, series, web series and YouTube Originals. The main topics will be pop-cultural music documentaries as well as women in pop culture: in the film and music business, on stage, in front of and behind the camera. For example the film Kate Nash: Underestimate The Girl (US) by director Amy Goldstein accompanies Kate Nash on her way through the music business and looks at her experiences as band leader of an all-girl band and supporter of DIY in a male domain. Before the screening, Kate Nash will be there for a Q&A-interview and will answer questions on the making of the film. On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, the Europe premiere Creating Woodstock (US) by Mick Richards looks behind the scenes of this mother of all festivals, shows so-far unpublished material and deals with the question why the Woodstock myth still reverberates today.
