I know this is shameless advertising, but . . .
The long-awaited opening night of our International Comedy Film Festival (ICoFF) is tonight!
We'll be screening Saya Zamurai (Scabbard Samurai), Matsumoto Hitoshi's latest film, followed by a sushi buffet. There will also be two surprise events before and after the film . . . ! Tickets (for tonight or for the rest of the festival) can be reserved at the Filmtheater am Friedrichshain website.
Tickets are 9 EUR (incl. buffet) for the opening night, 8 EUR for regular full-length features (7 EUR reduced), and 6.50 EUR for shorts. (nb. +3 EUR for our 3D film Ronal the Barbarian)
We've got a fantastic line-up of short- and full-length comedy films from 14 different countries to be screened over the course of the next 7 days. Almost every film is opened with some kind of a fun "komisch" event. The full program can be found on our website.

Un Cuento Chino [Chinese Take-Away] (drama/comedy, Argentina, Sebastian Boresztein)
The Greatest Movie Ever Sold (documentary/comedy, USA, Morgan Spurlock)
Saya Zamurai [Scabbard Samurai] (samurai comedy, Japan, Hitoshi Matsumoto)
but there are plenty of other hilarious films to discover.
