AWARD CEREMONY: STARTER AWARDS
Each year, three Starter Film Awards of 8,000 euros each are given to artistically outstanding films, particularly those by young, unestablished Munich filmmakers. Additionally, the Starter Film Award / Production, sponsored by PHAROS – The Post Group (formerly ARRI Media), is awarded as a non-cash benefit valued at 8,000 euros for the post-production of a future film. Past award winners include German directors such as Maren Ade, Philip Gröning, and Oliver Haffner, who have gone on to achieve fame.
The 2022 Starter Film Awards go to Felix Klee for HOAMWEH LUNG, Hilarija Laura Ločmele for DESIRED CHILD, and Lara Milena Brose and Kilian Armando Friedrich for ÜBERLEBEN. The 2022 Starter Film Award / Production goes to Erec Brehmer for WER WIR GEWESEN SEIN WERDEN.
The award-winning films will be screened immediately after the award ceremony: HOAMWEH LUNG, DESIRED CHILD, and ÜBERLEBEN in their entirety, and an excerpt of WER WIR GEWESEN SEIN WERDEN.
Open to the public.
