Ger­man Short Film Award 2020 goes vir­tu­al

On Wednes­day, Novem­ber 25, 2020, at 8 pm the Gold­en Lola will be award­ed to young film­mak­ers by the Fed­er­al Gov­ern­ment Com­mis­sion­er for Cul­ture and the Media, Min­is­ter of State Prof. Moni­ka Grüt­ters, as part of the Ger­man Short Film Award. This is the most impor­tant award for short film in Ger­many.

This year, the award cer­e­mo­ny will take place online in a new set­ting: In a fes­tive, vir­tu­al award cer­e­mo­ny tak­ing place in Kino Inter­na­tion­al Berlin, the award win­ners will be hon­oured for their out­stand­ing achieve­ments in the pro­duc­tion of short films. The event will be mod­er­at­ed by actor and DFFB grad­u­ate Tim Oliv­er Schultz and musi­cal­ly accom­pa­nied by the band Die Höch­ste Eisen­bahn and excit­ing pre­sen­ters, includ­ing Emi­ly Atef, Lars Kraume, Anni­ka Pinske, and Anna Thal­bach, who will join us through livestream. Thanks to the livestream, the audi­ence will also have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to attend the event in real time.

After the cer­e­mo­ny, in the LOLA LOUNGE, guests, award win­ners, and nom­i­nees will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to chat and toast each oth­er, while DIE HÖCHSTE EISENBAHN will pro­vide back­ground music. Press rep­re­sen­ta­tives will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to con­duct inter­views with the award win­ners and par­tic­i­pants by pri­or appoint­ment.

The DFFB is delight­ed that it has two pro­duc­tions that are nom­i­nat­ed IN DEN BINSEN and LAND OF GLORY. We are keep­ing our fin­gers crossed!

We look for­ward to an excit­ing and enter­tain­ing event. With your par­tic­i­pa­tion in the livestream, the Ger­man Short Film Award 2020 will be a joy­ful place to meet despite adverse cir­cum­stances. Cul­ture will tri­umph over cri­sis!
