FilmFestSpezial is a monthly 30-minute television programme presenting arthouse films with passion, heart & intention and we are talking with the makers and actors of these movies on the film festivals in Lower Saxony.
Annotation for our guests: The talks are being held usually in German, but can also be held in English. The talks will be subtitled in the post production. For a short portrayal/presentation of your movie in the magazine we do use clips of the film, usually provided by the distributors or production companies. Favorably these clips and not trailers, because these are more suitable for a short review on TV, so that the audience has a clue about the film and the plot doesn’t has to subject of the interview..
FilmFestSpezial is a coproduction of the two local tv/community channels from Lower Saxony h1 – Fernsehen aus Hannover and oeins – Oldenburgs Lokalsender, together with the association of community access channels in Lower Saxony (LMB) and the film and media office (FMB), an organization who represents filmmakers from Lower Saxony and Bremen.
