15th Berlin & Beyond Film Festival Coming To San Francisco

Centerpiece film: When We Leave (Die Fremde)

Guten Tag!  For one entire week (10/22 – 10/28) the Castro Theatre will serve as your home for a slew of fantastic films hailing from Austria, Germany, Switzerland and beyond.  It’s the beyond part that I’m looking forward to the most.  Many of the filmmakers will be in town to talk about their films and do some Q&A, so be sure and stay after the credits have rolled.

So what exactly can you expect to see at this year’s Berlin & Beyond?  I think the trailer (below) will serve as a pretty good preview and will offer a decent idea of the types of films that will be playing.  Also, stay tuned to Filmbalaya, as we will be reviewing selected films in the weeks to come before they play at the festival.

Be sure to follow the jump after the trailer for a complete schedule and to see how you can purchase tickets.
