As every year, this year’s festival jury – Katalin Barsony, Paul Dandos, Rebecca Heiler and Lisa Smith – will select the Best Film and the Best Short Film of the festival. Artistic and technical quality play just as much a role as the social and political impact of the films. Furthermore, the audience is also asked for their opinion: The Audience Award will again be waiting for its winner in the fourth edition of the festival! The artistic director of the festival Hamze Bytyçi will host the award ceremony, streamed live from the legendary Berlin club SO36. The singer, songwriter and actress Riah Knight, the singer, performer and actor Lindy Larsson, and the musicians Janko Lauenberger, Daniel Weltlinger and Daniel Kahn will provide the musical accompaniment.
