Hessian Film and Cinema Award 2018
Metabolic Balance invited me to the Hessian Film and Cinema Award and of course I couldn’t help but accept this wonderful invitation.
This year’s Hessian Film and Cinema Award, presented by the fabulous actor and presenter Jochen Schropp, took place on the fringes of the Frankfurt Book Fair.
The prize was created to honour outstanding productions and personalities for the 29th time with a total of 247,500 euros in prize money, covering several categories.
Laudators included Christian Schwochow, Paula Beer, Ronja von Rönne, Kida Khodr Ramadan, Dunja Hayali and Pegah Ferydoni.
After our arrival at the Westin Grand Hotel in Frankfurt everything went very fast. We were a little late due to traffic and had no time to rest. So we went to the shower and directly into the mask, outfit had to be changed and off we went. Shuttle of our partner AUDI stood ready and took us to the Alte Oper. Once there we had to wait in the car. In front of us were other guests who wanted to cross the red carpet, because we were not the only guests.
Tarantino star (known from Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill) Michael Madsen walked among other things over the red carpet which made me very happy. Fangirl Vivi was ready! After the red carpet we went straight in, registered us and took a seat.
There followed a varied award ceremony with great laudatios, interesting guests and the surprise guest, comedian Olli Dittrich, who presented the prize.
The special prize went to Lisa Blumenberg for her outstanding performance in “Bad Banks”.
Michael Madsen won the Kinokulturpreis and thus honoured commercial and non-commercial cinemas.
Boris Rhein awarded the Newcomer Prize to director and producer Isabel Gathof.
