BMW Group as partner to the 10th Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival

The BMW Group is setting new standards in the automobile sector. As a company that is active throughout the globe, BMW Group feels that it has a worldwide responsibility socially, politically, ecologically and culturally. For over 70 years, the Munich-based company has been involved in the world of film, supporting both national and international film projects which embody the specific values of the company. BMW Group is supporting the 10th Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival as a meeting point between East and West.

The involvement of the BMW Group in the area of film

The internationally acclaimed semi-documentary trilogy "Heimat" by Edgar Reitz, which covers contemporary German history from fascism to the fall of the Berlin Wall through a large family from the Hunsrück region, was constantly monitored during the long years of its creation. With 150 million viewers, internet film project "The Hire" broke all records. Other projects have included popular television entertainment, blockbusters like "Bridget Jones", and challenging arthouse films such as the German-Austrian-French co-production "Caché" (Hidden) by Michael Haneke or the Israeli-German-Palestinian co-production "The Syrian Bride" by Eran Riklis.

BMW awards licences for popular cartoons, such as the licence for a MINI Cooper in which the "Simpsons" drive through London, and for computer games such as the motorcycle race simulator "Riding Spirits 2", provides vehicles for video clips, such as Sting’s "Stolen Car", and ensures enjoyable stunts with MINI like in the action thriller "The Italian Job".
In addition, it also supports film festivals and film events, such as the Berlinale 2005, when it supported the premieres of the intelligent nouvelle vague dramas "Gespenster" (Ghosts) by Christian Petzold, the 15-minute art project "Atdjest" (Leaving) by Clemens von Wedemeyer and "Lost and Found", an Eastern European short film project created by six young film-makers from Eastern Europe. However vast the range of BMW involvement in the area of film and entertainment may be the projects supported by BMW always stand for quality, innovation and the love of creating something truly successful. You will be able to see a selection of the film projects this year at the 10th Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival.
