One future Prize

The people of our century face a common future — one future. Since 1986, this award from the Interfilm Akademie München, which since January 2020 ist again led by "film pastor" Eckart Bruchner, has been presented to films shown at FILMFEST MÜNCHEN which, ethically as well as aesthetically, show that our world has one common future. Recipients include such important films such as IT’S ALL TRUE about Orson Welles (1994), BONHOEFFER: AGENT OF GRACE by Eric Till (2000), and WHEN PIGS HAVE WINGS by Sylvain Estibal (2012).
