Classics from Laurel and Hardy, an early horror film and Victorian home movies will be on the screens of the city venue for the first time as part of the five-day festival.
This year the festival commemorates the birth of Germany’s Weimar Republic which led to an era of creativity in film and art which still influences culture today. The exodus of talented writers, directors and set designers to America when Hitler rose to power in the 1930s led directly to Hollywood’s Golden Age of cinema.
During the 1920s, it was common for films to be co-produced by British and German teams; stars from both countries worked on films and young directors such as Hitchcock worked in Germany at that time.
