A spontaneous encounter turns into a surprising, unforgettable evening. A heartwarming and humorous crowd pleaser: MY FAVOURITE CAKE is the new collaboration between Iranian directing duo Maryam Moghaddam and Behtash Sanaeeha, following their first film together, Ballad of the White Cow, and premiered in competition at this year's Berlinale to enthusiastic audience reactions and a very positive press response.

About Ostwestpassagen: 'Ostwestpassagen' is a private foundation run on a voluntary basis. It contributes to the dialog between cultures and focuses its work on a peace-promoting discourse between Orient and Occident. In keeping with the name of the foundation, events are held that highlight the diverse and multi-layered connections between the cultures and promote mutual understanding. The 'East-West Passages' open up access to sometimes unknown worlds and encourage an exchange about different, sometimes conflicting or shared interpretations of foreign cultures. The initiators strive for a differentiated perception beyond idealization and devaluation. The Ostwestpassagen cultural initiative was launched at the beginning of 2015 and its work was transferred to a foundation in 2022. The foundation's work is always carried out in cooperation with other institutions and individuals.
