Franco-German Film Series at the CCA

Laughter is good for your soul! This year’s film collaboration between the Goethe Institut and the Alliance Française will stand under the heading of comedy.

Though the sense of humor varies according to national history and culture, it still manages to reach people regardless of age, gender, race and across country borders.
Within the scope of the German-Franco film series the two institutes each presents two movies produced in their respective country focusing on different kinds of comedy.

By screening dramatic, romantic and more cheerful, ribald comedy, the series is sure to hit everyone’s nerve and boost the anticipation for the upcoming summer.
Enjoy four entertaining evenings at the CCA with successful and popular movies of the past years from Germany and France.

Venue: Centre for Contemporary Arts, 350 Sauchiehall St, Glasgow G2 3JD
