Cinematographer and director Elfi Mikesch presented the graduates with a quote from director Federico Fellini as they set out into the world: “To make intelligent mistakes is a great art”. Elfi Mikesch underlined that there is nothing wrong with making mistakes even after leaving film school, and indeed that mistakes are in a sense a must in order to learn from these as part of the creative process.

The Major Minors once again provided the musical accompaniment for the graduation ceremony.

This was followed in the evening by the dffb summer party at Gretchen, giving graduates, their relatives and friends as well as dffb students, staff and lecturers a chance to celebrate together.

Many thanks go to our sponsors for the summer party, Budweiser and Brezel Bar.
