After the cancellation of its 2020 edition due to Covid, the Filmfest München (1-10 July) finally took place this year, with a focus on open air screenings. The program of the second biggest festival in Germany after the Berlinale was diverse, showing international titles in different sections. A selection of prizes were awarded at the end of the festival, such as the German Cinema New Talent Award, given to young talents in four categories. The jury consisted of three members: the actress Sophie von Kessel, the actor Komi M. Togbonou and the artistic director of the Münchner Kammerspiele Barbara Mundel. They gave the award for the Best Director to Nikias Chryssos for his religious parody A Pure Place [+lire aussi :

The jury explained its decision: “Through impressive images bursting with imagination and loaded with cinematic effects, we realised once again what we can expect from motion pictures: everything that’s missing in life, perhaps even in everyone’s life! The unusual, the sometimes disturbing, peppered with visions of the unimaginable.” The Best Screenplay award went to Franziska Stünkel for The Last Execution. Stünkel not only wrote the script but also directed this drama set in the GDR which stars among others German actor Lars Eidinger.

The Best Production award was given to Miriam Düssel for her work on My Son by Lena Stahl. The drama about a mother and son undertaking a road trip together and trying to form a new bond stars Jonas Dassler and Anke Engelke. Martin Rohde finally won the Best Actor prize for his performance in Heiko's World by Dominik Galizia. Among the rest of the cast of this tragicomedy about a young man who tries to earn money for his mother’s surgery were also Franz Rogowski and Gerdy Zint.

Besides the German film section, a prize was awarded to the Best International Film in the festival’s CineMasters competition. The Arri/Osram Award, with a prize money of € 50,000, went to the thriller-comedy Only the Animals [+lire aussi :

by Dominik Moll. “The film tells a gripping, suspenseful, and poignant story about how seemingly personal actions and interactions can lead to complex connections and dramatic consequences,” stated the jury composed of Bettina Reitz, President of the University of Television and Film Munich, the actor Max von der Groeben and the art historian Roger Diederen from the Kunsthalle München.

Furthermore, the CineVision Award endowed with € 15,000 went to Night of the Kings [+lire aussi :

by Philippe Lacôte for the Best International Emerging Film. The drama is a co-production between the Ivory Coast, France, Canada and Senegal and was appreciated by the jury in the following way: “Director Philippe Lacôte’s film explores the challenges of storytelling in a society ridden with violence. By coupling the beauty of pre-colonial Africa with harsh reality and the appropriation of its own history, the director advances an autonomous African narrative.” The same CineVision jury attributed a honourable mention to coming-of-age story The Innocence [+lire aussi :
