»Oldenburg's mayor to award Torsten Neumann with the Official Seal of the City«

Torsten Neumann will receive the Official Seal of the City from mayor Gerd Schwandner on July 28th 2011.

In recognition of his outstanding commitment and his special services for the city a special award ceremony will be held in the Old Town Hall. Torsten Neumann declared that "Oldenburg is a city full of extremes. It is small and comfortable yet very cosmopolitan and full of cultural challenges. In this sense it is the perfect place for an international film festival."

Torsten Neumann has made a name for himself not only as the director of the Oldenburg Filmfestival. For more than ten years now he is producing films together with Berlin actor, director, and producer RP Kahl under the label Independent Partners. They started collaborating with the legendary "99euro films" project and have recently seen the international release of their critically acclaimed production "Bedways".

The 18th Oldenburg International Filmfestival takes place from September 14th to 18th 2011.
