TV Crime Festival
7 to 12 March 2017
As every year in spring, police officers, serial killers, and kidnappers met for a murderous rendezvous at Caligari FilmBühne cinema. On the silver screen, that was, during the renowned German TV Crime Festival, which was scheduled to be held for the 13th time in 2017, between 7 an 12 March 2017. Ten German-language TV crime dramas were competing for the German TV Crime Award – a jury made up of celebrities decided on who will receive the prize. The award consisted of a 1,000-litre barrel of wine for the winner. The main competition was accompanied by film talks with actors and producers, opening nights, readings, and the Long TV Crime Night attracting crime drama aficionados to jointly investigate crimes in the capital of Hesse.
