International jury announced


Jury president Matthew Modine is joined by an impressive cast of film industry insiders on the festival’s jury

Oliver Stone, Sir Alan Parker, Stanley Kubrick and Robert Altman have all worked with him. Matthew Modine won a Golden Globe for “Short Cuts” and the actor’s award at the Venice Film Festival. In 2011 the 52year old actor, director and producer heads the jury of the Oldenburg International Film Festival.

His directorial debut came for Radley Metzger at the age of 28 with the historical tragedy “Dark Odyssey”. His later works like “Therese and Isabelle” or “The Lickerish Quartett” are hailed as masterpieces of erotic cinema. Last year the festival’s retrospective showcased Metzger’s works.

Director, writer and cameraman Soopum Sohn is a mainstay at Pusan and Sundance Film Festivals, winning the silver medal at the Student Academy Awards for his “Island to Island”. He is junior professor at the Long Island University.

Running a company like Altadena Films has given Ildi Toth Davy the chance to bring many films like “The Girl Next Door” or “Travellers” into international cinemas. She started her career as a sales assistant at Carolco on the film “First Blood”, which is part of this year’s retrospective.

Matteo Lovadina has been working in the film industry for more than ten years before he started his own distribution company Reel Suspects. Two of his films “22nd of May” and “The Orphan Girl without an Arm” are running in Oldenburg this year.
