A compilation of first and second directorial works by international filmmakers reveals how diverse, creative and political feature filmmaking can be at the beginning of an artistic career. The aim of this human world up&coming Competition is not only to promote these professional newcomers, but also to emphasise and recognise their cinematic value and wealth of ideas. The competition is intended to be a place for experimentation and innovation, while ensuring respect and sensitivity to what is being filmed. A section that expresses appreciation for the unpolished in its most exciting form.
The Up & Coming Prize of 1000 euro will be awarded by jury members Levin Peter (filmmaker), Marie Luise Lehner (author, musician, film artist) and Johannes Gierlinger (filmmaker).
