2011 :: Stars of Excellence Reunite

The 2010 Jury President & Star of Excellence recipient, Deborah Kara Unger, returns to Oldenburg and joins 2011 Jury President & Star of Excellence recipient, Matthew Modine on the 2011 Opening Night Red Carpet. Both Alums of the Fest, Modine presented the world premiere of his 1999 feature debut in Oldenburg, and Unger returned to present Emilio Estevez’s »The Way« at the Mid Gala screening at the St. Lamberti Church where it received a 7-minute standing ovation.

»Just as impressive as the films was the festival itself, which, under the inspired direction of Torsten Neumann, combined intelligent cinephilia with a laid-back atmosphere of democratic equality.«
