With its discreet entrance at the south side of the Museum Ludwig, Filmforum has been playing the pleasant understatement card for 10 years now. Even inside there’s nothing to hint at the importance of this film location. It’s the only non-commercial picture house in Cologne, which is reflected in the fact that there’s often no entrance fee. What really gets the pulses of cineastes racing is the focus on retro movies, previews and premieres that lie outside of mainstream cinema as well as regularly showing films made by students from the International Film School Cologne (ifs) – something often complemented by lectures or discussions with film directors. Finally, Filmforum is also one of the venues that shows films as part of festivals such as homochrom or the International Women’s Film Festival. It’s safe to say, film has found a lovely home at the Filmforum.
