Congratulations to our wonderful winners of the Golden Bear for Best Short Film and the Silver Bear Jury Prize (Short Film), the Audi Short Film Award as well as the Berlin Short Film Nominee for the European Film Awards!
Impressive Ines Moldavsky got the Golden Bear for Best Short Film with „The Men Behind the Wall“!
„Everything could be so simple if she weren‘t in Isreal and the guys nearby that Tinder suggests in search mode weren‘t in the Westbank. Israeli filmmaker Ines Moldavsky makes herself the subject of her own investigation.“ (Maike Mia Höhne / Curator of Berlinale Shorts)
Silver Bear Jury Prize (Short Film) for the first Rwandan production in the competition of Berlinale Shorts: „IMFURA“ by Samuel Ishimwe!
“In the loneliness and quietness of Switzerland I was able to reflect on myself and people close to me. The goal in the film was to express this perspective in the most dignifying and poetic way possible.“ (Samuel Ishimwe)
Congrats! Audi Short Film Award 2018, endowed with € 20,000, enabled by Audi for “Solar Walk” by Réka Bucsi.
„It was to make a movie, that just gets the viewer out of their skin for the time they are watching it. I wanted to create a careless journey through mind and space.” (Réka Bucsi)
The Berlin Short Film Nominee for the European Film Award 2018 goes to “Burkina Brandenburg Komplex” by Ulu Braun!
„A presumably African village, inhabited by Germans. The Film describes a geographical construction that makes use of “our” medial and collective image of Africa and puts it to the test through inaccuracies.” (Ulu Braun)
