Blue Hour – Festival Talks at the Nordic Film Days Lübeck

International stars and filmmakers close enough to raise one’s glass to: As part of its supporting programme, Nordic Film Days Lübeck invites well-known directors and actors to participate in discussions at the bar. In cooperation with NDR presenters, the audience is given the opportunity to discuss cinema experiences, deepen the study of their favourite film or listen to anecdotes of film shoots. The informative Blue Hour festival talks can be enjoyed with drinks or cocktails in a relaxed atmosphere during happy hour at the Qué Pasa bar next to CineStar Filmpalast Stadthalle. The talks take place from Wednesday 2.11. through Saturday 5.11. at 6pm. On Sunday 6.11. at 1pm, a balance-striking talk takes place with the festival directors Christine Berg, Linde Fröhlich and Christian Modersbach. The address is Qué Pasa, Mühlenbrücke 17, 23552 Lübeck.
