Questo articolo è disponibile in inglese.

Edimotion is the oldest festival in Europe to focus exclusively on the editing process. This year, the Cologne festival celebrated its 21st edition, offering once more a platform specifically to features, documentaries and short films from the German-speaking region. With film screenings but also panels and workshops, the festival encourages the dialogue between filmmakers and their audience.

Besides a special focus this year on films from the UK, the main programme is organised into three main sections: feature films, documentaries, and short films, and a best editing prize goes to one project in each category. Among the feature films nominated were The Trouble with Being Born [+leggi anche:

) and actor Dominique Jann (Lost in Paradise) was impressed by the film which “achieves a balance between drama and comedy” and whose editing is “precisely set and sensitively thought through.” A special mention went to Jessica Schneller for her editing of Naked Animals in which she “creates intimacy.”

The main award in the documentary section, also connected to a money prize of € 7,500, went to Bettina Böhler, editor and director of Schlingensief – A Voice that Shook the Silence [+leggi anche:

Both juries together also decided on the winners of a special prize named “The Edit Space,” endowed with € 2,500. It went to the young editing duo Famil Aghayev and Fabio Thieme for their work on the mockumentary and short film Suite by Fabio Thieme.

Each year, the festival also pays a tribute to an editor for his or her career. With Ingrid Koller, this edition honoured for the first time an Austrian editor (The Best of All Worlds [+leggi anche:

).

Artistic director Kyra Scheurer and administrative director Jenny Krüger draw a positive conclusion on this year's edition of the festival, that earned on top of everything the label of being the first festival in North Rhine-Westphalia to take place on a complete climate-neutral basis, by reducing CO2 emission on every level.
