It’s a wrap – Landshut Film Festival

Over the weekend we were in Landshut for the 16th. Landshut Kurzfilmfestival (short film festival). They showed our film “Kein Applaus” and we ended up in the audience favorite!

We all had a great time and I hope to come back here sometime in the future!

I would like to mention four films I saw there that were quite outstanding:

Alles wird gut

The best film I saw there. The film is about a desperate father and his daughter by Patrick Vollrath. It was incredible.  No cliches, astonishing acting. Wonderful filmmaking.

Sneeze Freeze

A very short film about a money-hostage exchange gone wrong by Gabriel Borgetto. Excellent and fun entertainment.

Totes Land

A mothers and daughters struggle against being relocated for the expansion of an open-strip coal mine. Researched, written and directed by Benjamin Pfohl. If you have a link, please add it in the comments. I’ll move it up here.

Auf den Hund gekommen

A comedy and the winner of the audience award. Directed by Tom Sommerlatte.


Soundtrack Cologne 8.0

It was a great time at Soundtrack Cologne. The program that they manage to put together is impressive, it was fun and informative! I spent a little too much time in the business side of things workshops instead of the inspirational and fun workshops about the music, but hey, that’s important too!

I met some great people including Jeff Rona (who I met about 10 years ago at Berklee) and Joris de Man.

And of course all the guys who I’ve known online for quite a while have finally a face, body language and voice.

It’s inspiring and it’s incredibly important to talk and exchange ideas and also support each other in our daily work challenges.
