It was also great for the winners of this year's awards. Sudabeh Mortezai was awarded a prostitute drama "Joy". "It's not just a personal confession to me – such a prize is also an opportunity for the film," said the director: "Maybe such a film can be at least a small dose of antidepressant fear and anger in the atmosphere."
Christian Frosch acknowledged his documentary film "The anatomy of the Murer process" as an important document of the unpopular Austrian native who continues to this day. "Responsive projects may fail, projects that have no resistance, have already failed," Frosch assured.
Erste Bank MehrWERT-Filmpreis visited Sara Fattah, Vienna, for his essay "Chaos" and the Viennese Wolfgang Fischer for his refugee couple "Styx" ex aequo. Both can spend a month in New York, where Anthology Film Archives also has a retrospective.
The "Standard" award went to Roberto Minervin's African American study "What are you doing when the world is on fire?" The director thanked him with a political video message and promise: "The next beer is mine!" And finally, the FIPRESCI International Film Critics Award went to the political list of Cesar Vassy's "No Trap Pairs." "I can not dance with you this evening," Vassyies told through the video.
