More than 15.000 visitors watched the 55 films screening at Oldenburg fest

After five eventful days filled with 8 world premieres, 9 international premieres, 3 European premieres, 17 German premieres and a total of 55 shown films the Oldenburg International Film Festival ended on Sunday to a rapt audience and with another audience record. The festival opening gala was highlighted by the comedy “No sex is no option” by Torsten Wacker in front of 1300 people at Oldenburg’s EWE Arena with stars Stephan Luca, Anna Thalbach, Armin Rohde and Janin Reinhardt in attendance. With the award ceremony and the premiere of “Anduni – Where is Home” with guest Florian Lukas the festival ended on Sunday.

“Dr. Ketel” by Linus de Paoli won the jury award “German Independence Award – Best German Film”. The international jury of Matthew Modine, Radley Metzger, Ildi Toth Davy, Soopum Sohn, and Matteo Lovadina concluded, “The film adventurously explores the techniques of film making. Pushing the boundaries of storytelling to an area that is unique in contemporary cinema.”
The “German Independence Award – Audience Award” – presented by Peter Göttelmann, CEO Marketing of EWE AG – went to “Happy New Year” by K. Lorrel Manning with Michael Cuomo as lead actor. Both attended the festival.
Director Markus Engel received the award for the best short film for his work “The Last Guest” with a special recommendation going to “15 Summers Later” by Pedro Collantes.

Another highlight of the festival was the German premiere of US-Spanish co-production “The Way” by Emilio Estevez in attendance of Deborah Kara Unger and Yorick van Wageningen at the packed St. Lamberti Church, where the festival showed a film for the first time.

Among the many programming highlights were “Brawler” an energizing tale about two brothers who fight for the same woman in a series of illegal bouts. Filip Tegstedt was showing his surprise hit “Marianne”, a suggestive and sensitive family drama drawing heavily from myths about ghosts and trolls. Henry Barrial’s “Pig” is a dystopian scifi film enriching the program. Robbie Pickering’s debut film “Natural Selection” had won several awards at SXSW Festival in Texas already. He ironically mixes the conventions of Christian redemption films with classical outsider road movies.

Among the guests of this years festival were: Matthew Modine, Deborah Kara Unger, Inger Nilsson, Ted Kotcheff, Roger Fritz, Mark Polish, Arthur Brauss, Radley Metzger, Bela B. Felsenheimer, Stephan Luca, Anna Thalbach, Armin Rohde, Janin Reinhardt, Kostja Ullmann, Ken Duken, Florian Lukas, Marc Senter, Nathan Grubbs, Chris Sivertson, Noémie Merlant, and Burak Yigit.Lastly we want to thank you for the good partnership this year.
