Think:Film Awards


The Think:Film Award which was presented as part of Forum Expanded for the second time goes to Lukasz Ronduda and Maciej Sobiezczanski for OSKAR DAWICKI IN THE PERFORMER as well as Pierre Huyghe for UNTITLED (HUMAN MASK). Akram Zataari receives a special mention for TWENTY-EIGHT NIGHTS AND A POEM. The award, established in cooperation with the Allianz Kulturstiftung, honors a work that creatively uses its medium in order to grasp and reflect geopolitical contexts artistically, to broaden the space of aesthetic experience, and to encourage mental shifts of perspective. The award, chosen by a three-member jury, includes travel to and accommodation in Berlin and Cairo, where the selected works will be presented. Jury members were Mohamed Beshir (Cairo), Karim Aïnouz (Berlin), Ala Younis (Amman).
