120 films will be shown at the 39th Munich Film Festival this year – including a cinema documentary about Princess Diana.

A special treat for Royal fans: the first cinema documentary about Princess Diana (1961-1997) will also be shown at the 39th Munich Film Festival this year. The Ed Perkins documentary will be screened on June 26, 27 and 28 – a few days before the regular start of production in cinemas.

The official launch is scheduled for June 30, one day before Lady Di’s birthday. She would have turned 61 on July 1st. The reason for the publication of the documentary is the 25th anniversary of the princess’s death on August 31st. The production consists exclusively of contemporary archive material.

Also many world premieres

According to the announcement, a total of 120 films from 52 countries will be shown as part of the film festival, which takes place from June 23 to July 2. 35 of the productions are celebrating their world premiere. Among other things, several films that caused a stir at the Cannes Film Festival will be shown. Marie Kreutzer’s (45) “Corsage” will open the film festival. Vicky Krieps (38), who plays Sisi in it, was honored in Cannes for the best performance.
