LIVE: Project Pitch (Part II)
The KINO DER KUNST Project Award, endowed in the amount of €5,000, helps young European artists and filmmakers to produce a new single- or multi-channel work that goes beyond the boundaries of the traditional narrative film and tests new modes of storytelling. We asked major art academies and film schools throughout Europe to each nominate two alumni under the age of 35, who are considered to be outstanding talents by their former professors.
Eight candidates have been invited to Munich to pitch their project to an international jury, headed by Bjørn Melhus, artist and professor at the Kunsthochschule Kassel. Further members of the jury are Markus Hannebauer, software entrepreneur, Director of the Fluentum Collection and member of the KINO DER KUNST Advisory Board; Emilija Škarnulyte, artist and winner of the last Project Award; Julian Rosefeldt, artist, professor at the Academy of Fine Arts Munich and member of the KINO DER KUNST Advisory Board; and Daniel Lang, filmmaker and representative of the University of Television and Film Munich (HFF).
