We are almost there! Another year has gone by and the 69th Berlin International Film Festival is about to start. Before we begin sharing more details concerning the contributions of 2019 with you, we want to know how the winners of last year’s competition have been spending the time after their success in 2018.
Check out the interview with Samuel Ishimwe, who won the Silver Bear Jury Prize (Short Film) 2018 with Imfura.
How has life been since last year’s Berlinale Shorts?
Life has been great career-wise, the Berlinale really shed a light on my film, after I travelled to multiple good festivals, and got to see how it interacts with different audiences.
What did winning the award mean to you personally?
It gave me a great feeling of acceptance and uplifted my confidence to continue shape my own cinematic accent.
What are your plans for 2019?
I want to end this year with a new film, a feature film – if it all goes as planned.
At the 2019 edition of Berlinale Shorts, 24 films from 17 countries will be competing for the Golden and Silver Bear, the Audi Short Film Award (endowed with 20,000 euros) and a nomination as “Berlin Short Film Candidate for the European Film Awards 2019”.
