You are invited to the film screening “Center of my World”, a film based on the 1998 bestselling novel “The Center of the World” by Andreas Steinhöfel. The film screening is within the framework of the German Film Festival for Children & Young Audience.

After summer camp, the 17-year-old Phil (Louis Hofmann) returns home to find that his mother, Glass (Sabine Timoteo), and his twin sister, Dianne (Ada Philine Stappenbeck), aren’t speaking to one another. Not willing to confront his family during the last days of summer holidays, Phil escapes to hang out with his best friend Kat. When school begins, a new student arrives: the handsome and mysterious Nicholas (Jannik Schümann). Phil starts to question his feelings towards Nicholas and is thrilled when his feelings are returned. However, when first love’s volatility comes to light, Phil realizes that he must deal with envy, jealousy and secretiveness…
