The new millennium since 2000 marked a beginning of a new era for the German film industry. German cinematography is enjoying its renaissance with bigger-budget films, good returns and growing audience. But what do we know about about the latest developments in German cinema? Prominent names, remarkable films, new trends? This will be discussed in a talk of Robin Mallick, programmes director of South Asia at Goethe-Institut New Delhi and a former festival director at Filmfest Dresden. The programme will also include screening of short films by young German filmmakers.

After finishing studies of International Cultural and Business Studies at the University of Passau (Germany) and at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Spain), he moved on to Dresden.
