Day 8 of the 18th PROVINZIALE – Empathy, care, patience, courage

With a festive award ceremony on Saturday, October 16. at the Eberswalder Haus Schwärzetal the 18th Provincial came to an end. In keeping with tradition, the program makers paid tribute to every single film in the four competitions and placed them in the context of the festival’s central questions.
An audience award was then awarded in each of the four competitions.
1. Animated film: OBERVOGELGESANG (Germany) by Ferdinand Ehrhardt and Elias Weinberger
2. Short film: PLAY FOR EVERYONE (Russia) by Ivan Petukhov
3. Documentary film up to 45 minutes: THE GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS of Amelie Befeld
4. Documentary from 45 min: STOLLEN by Laura Reichwald

The special jury prize “DER STACHEL” for a successful examination of the sustainability problem went to the Italian short film ZHENG by Giacomo Sebastiani. SECURITY 123 (Austria / Italy) by Julia Gutweniger and Florian Kofler and RIFT FINFINNEE (Germany) by Daniel Kötter were also nominated.
Despite its unusual outdoor setting, the festival drew an audience of over 1,000 visitors. The film festival team thanks all supporters, its audience and the visiting filmmakers for a successful week with numerous conversations in an informal atmosphere. The importance of the evaluated film works, which showed empathy, human care, patience and courage, was palpable for everyone involved, especially in the current social situation. We look forward to the next festival.
