about Hof International Film Festival
As one of the leading film fests in Germany, the Hof International Film Festival has become well-established as a platform for young German directors and is widely regarded as important arena for discovering new talents, second only to Berlin. Of equal importance, however, are the independent movies from all over the world that make up roughly half the program consisting of 130 odd feature films, documentaries and shorts. German directors like Tom Tykwer, Caroline Link, Maren Ade, Doris Dörrie or Wim Wenders and Werner Herzog celebrated the premieres of many of their films in Hof, often starting with their first short film, and went on to find international acclaim. Likewise Hof discovered directors like Roger Corman, Jim Jarmusch or Peter Jackson for the German market. Since 2017 Thorsten Schaumann is the artistic director of Hof International Film Festival.
