Vienna Promotion Gala with Political Laureates «

That's it: with Viennese film prizes and Luis Ortegy's "El Angel" project, Thursday's 56th Vienna event in Gartenbaukino ended. And new director Eva Sangiorgi has reason to be satisfied with the premiere at the festival, but the load has increased from 82.6 to 82.8 percent and could increase the audience from 91,700 to 93,200.

The winners of this year's film prizes were also great. Sudabeh Mortezai won the award for her prostitution career "Joy". "It's not just personal recognition – such a prize is also an opportunity for the film," the director said, "Perhaps such a film may be at least a small dose of an antibody into the atmosphere of fear and hatred."

Christian Frosch was awarded for the documentary drama "Murer – Anatomy of the Process" as an important documentary of the non-violent Austrian Nazi past that continues to this day. "Resistive projects may fail, projects without resistance have failed," said Frosch convinced.

Erste Bank MehrWERT-Filmpreis for his essay "Chaos" and Viennese Wolfgang Fisher for his refugee parable "Styx" ex aequo went to Vienna's Sary Fattahi. Both can each spend a month in New York, where they will also be retrospective in Anthology Film Archives.

The standard jury was awarded by the African-American study by Roberto Minervini, "What do you do when the world is in the fire?" The director thanked him for a political video message and a promise: "Another beer is mine!" Finally, the FIPRESCI International Film Critics Award was dedicated to Cesar Vassyie's political inventory, "Ne travaille pas." "It's a pity I can not dance with you tonight," says Vassyies through the video.

This would be possible in case of the Museumsquartier. For those who wanted to end the Viennese film, not a movie, but a party, it offered the last option for the local festival center. For 22 hours at the end of Party 2018, the Electric Indigo music was set.
