LevelK at Berlinale 2018

Dear Friends,

We're very excited to announce our lineup for Berlin - 2018!

Selected for Gothenburg International Film Festival and screening at EFM, The Monkey and the Mouth follows the award-winning Muslim-Hindu hiphop duo that challenges the freedom of speech with their plainspoken lyrics (read Variety's announcement here). Also on our lineup is our much anticipated animated feature The Incredible Story of the Giant Pear, a pre-sales hit will be opening the Generation KPlus Competition and the humour filled and engaging Swedish drama The Amateurs screening at Rotterdam IFF and opened Gothenburg Film Festival where it won Angelosprisen and Dragon Awards for Best Nordic Film. Other highlights at the market include the indigenous uplifting documentary The Song Keepers, the adventurous Icelandic football title The Falcons.

Notably A Horrible Woman has been generating a lot of noise within the press and raising social discussions after it's theatrical release in Denmark on December 25th, 2017.

Below you'll find our full lineup and screening schedule.
On upcoming titles, we will be introducing our meetings in Berlin.

The LevelK team will be taking meetings from 15 - 20 February.
