KINO! 2014 Revamped Festival Continues to Showcase New German Cinema in NYC

Christopher Bourne, Featured Critic
After its previous 35-year relationship with the Museum of Modern Art, the 2014 edition of the KINO! Festival of German Films in New York reboots in new locations, but still continues its mission of bringing notable recent German films to New York City. The festival's new home this year is the Quad Cinema, where the program will run from June 13 through June 19. This year's eclectic lineup includes features, documentaries, and award-winning shorts.

KINO! kicks off on June 12 with its opening night film, Christian Schwochow's West, which will screen at the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, Queens. The festival also includes the US theatrical release of Sabine Lidl's documentary Nan Goldin: I Remember Your Face, an engaging portrait of the influential photographic artist, which screens daily at the Quad during the festival.
