Next July 18, a “wandering film festival” will take place in Leutzsch, a district on the west side of Leipzig. The “wandering” part means that people will go from place to place across the district watching the short films selected for the event. It’s called Kurzfilmwanderung, a non-commercial alternative fest that apparently has happened before in Leipzig and elsewhere in Germany. If interested in participating, you’ve got 4 weeks from today to come up with a short film, of any genre or subject, of up to 20 minutes. The deadline to submit is Saturday, June 20. For participation forms and more info, visit https://kurzfilmwanderungleipzig.wordpress.com.

Next week I’ll go and see my first play in English in Leipzig. It’s called The Mysterious Mr. Love, from English Theatre Leipzig, and it will run May 28th through 30th, starting each time at 8 p.m., at Neues Schauspiel. It’s about a conman (“George Love”) who tries to dupe a spinster (“Adelaide”) into marrying him so he can run off with her money, but nothing goes as planned, and intrigue, drama and – perhaps even romance??? – ensue in the London of 1910.
