Goodbye Rabbi Wolff

We are very sorry to hear about the passing of the great Rabbi Wolff this morning.
He was a very special person who touched the lives of many deeply.
It's fortunate that Britta Wauer was able to portray him in her wonderful documentary and capture his life and legacy for future generations and we feel privileged to have been working with the film. Our deepest condolences to all family and friends and all Jewish communities he worked with. He will be missed very much.


WOOD selected to HOT DOCS

We're delighted to be able to announce that WOOD will celebrate the North American premiere at HOT DOCS in the World Showcase section of the festival - big congratulations to directors Monica Lazurean-Gorgan, Michaela Kirst, Ebba Sinzinger and the whole team!
Produced by WILDArt (A), Filmtank (D) and 4Proof Film (RO), WOOD had it's world premiere at CPH:DOX in March.
Unfortunately HOT DOCS as many festivals currently has been postboned due to COVID-19.
No new dates have been announced yet, but registered industry delegates can watch in The Doc Shop beginning April 30.
Meanwhile enjoy this interview that Austrian Films did with the three directors and the trailer to the film here.



WE HOLD THE LINE won the F:act Award competition at CPH:DOX in Copenhagen!
Congratulations to director Marc Wiese, producer Oliver Stoltz and the whole team and a great big thank you to the festival and the jury!

The festival had to move the whole program online. You can watch the wonderful Awards Show they put together here: vimeo.com/401401625

The F:act Award jury consisted of Israeli filmmaker Shosh Shlam, the Finnish film critic Marta Balaga and Danish director and journalist Nils Giversen.
The competition is dedicated to films in the field between documentary filmmaking, investigative journalism and activism and is presented in collaboration with the Danish Union of Journalists. The award is a cash prize of 5,000 euros.

The jury statement:

“The CPH:DOX F:act Award goes to the film depicting dark, troubling events in a skillful yet measured way, smartly focusing on just the right situations while employing a precise cinematic language. One that for all the portrayed hardships still manages to transform into a story about the unbreakable human spirit, providing the kind of narrative, and everyday heroes hell-bent on unearthing the truth, that we all desperately need right now. Making the voices of those fighting for the freedom of speech sound loud and clear, giving us hope for the future.”

The film will be available for Danish audiences to view at cphdox.dk/online until April 30.
