Winner of the Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival and nominated for a Golden Globe, FESTEN is the bold debut film from THE HUNT director Thomas Vinterberg. Demonstrating the values of the Dogma ‘95 film movement, FESTEN (The Celebration) is a blackly comic, wildly irreverent triumph. Gathering at the palatial country home for patriarch Helge’s 60th birthday celebrations, an elegant evening of dinner and polite chit chat is planned for the family. But, little by little, the family’s secrets begin to pour out, and the celebrations turn from stiff decorum to outright anarchy. Let the games begin.
