Boasting a multifaceted programme, Germany’s second most important festival is ready for its 37th edition, which will take place from 27 June-6 July in the Bavarian capital of Munich. This year, Filmfest München will be showing 180 recent films from 62 countries (including 118 German and 48 world premieres). The movie that will have the honour of opening the festival this year is Riley Stearns' US comedy The Art of Self-Defense, which stars Jesse Eisenberg in the leading role. Furthermore, both Antonio Banderas and Ralph Fiennes will be honoured with the CineMerit Award at the festival’s 37th edition. The overarching themes among this year's movies include alternative concepts of reality and innovative variations on international genre cinema.

In the CineMasters section, pictures by internationally acclaimed directors (with the exception of German filmmakers) will be competing for the ARRI/OSRAM Award (services from ARRI and OSRAM worth €50,000).
