Films and many guests from Wiesbaden, Israel and Brazil
Before moving on to the daily tips, we would like to congratulate the winners in the WIESBADEN YOUTH FILM COMPETITION, which were already announced yesterday by the audience:
First Prize: HEIMAT? from the team of the Diakonisches Werk Rheingau-Taunus
Second Prize: SCHRITTE IN DIE ZUKUNFT by Lena Krüger-Lorenzen
Third Prize: JA NEIN VIELLEICHT – DU HAST DIE WAHL of youth representatives of the Rheingau-Taunus-Kreis
We would also like to thank our prize sponsors: Hessian Ministry of Science and Art for the prize money of 500 euros (first prize) & Ergo sum | Apple Premium Reseller – Mainz for a 150 Euro voucher (second prize)
Today there is a full program to discover once again. At 12 o’clock for example you can go straight to the programme of the 15th WIESBADEN-SPECIAL – SHORT FILM COMPETITION in Caligari. There are eleven films in the competition, directed by filmmakers who were born or are living in Wiesbaden, or filmed in Wiesbaden.
From Wiesbaden outwards, we go to Israel, and more precisely, to the BEIT BERL College in Wiesbaden’s sister city, Kfar Saba. At 15:30, we will be presenting a short film program by film students from the college for the fourth time. We look forward to seeing many guests later at the Murnau Filmtheater.
Right afterwards, at 5.30 pm, we will welcome another guest in Murnau: Brunna Laboissière, who has come to present his film FABIANA, and sit on the international jury. In her documentary she accompanies the trans woman Fabiana, who has been driving a 30-tonner through the country for 30 years as a truck driver.
The lead actress in Andreas Horvath’s LILLIAN embarks on a much more laborious journey. Stranded as an émigré in New York, Lillian wants to go back to her homeland Russia on foot. The film is based on a true story.
