Bayern 2 2007 Neu

Who and what the audience wants to see, what they invest their lives and ticket money in, which story and star they fall in love with means everything to filmmakers. A film that earns the Audience Award has an excellent chance of being successful at the box office later on. That’s why Bayerischer Rundfunk and the Süddeutsche Zeitung are pleased to once again offer the Bayern 2 and SZ Audience Award at FILMFEST MÜNCHEN in 2021! And because the winners are not the only ones who should benefit from this award, these two major Bavarian media partners will also reward the audience. All those who vote for their favorite film will be entered into a drawing for a year-long pass to movie theaters in Bavaria.

Ah, cinema. That wonderful moment when the theater is bathed in pitch-black after the semi-darkness of the ads. In conjunction with the Süddeutsche Zeitung, Bayern 2 wants to find out this year as well which film the audience likes best. Of course, in the age of the pandemic, any film would deserve an audience award. But part of the magic of cinema is hearing someone call out, ‘The Audience Award goes to... .’ There can be only one!
