2012 :: The Sister Soul of Sorvino

Heading the first ever ‘all female’ International Jury for the German Films, Oscar-winner Mira Sorvino arrived to present 2012s »Union Square« with director Nancy Savoca – the recipient of Oldenburg’s first Honorary Tribute in 1994.

»It’s been a great honor, here in Oldenburg, to experience modern day German culture through the lens of your independent cinema.«

-Mira Sorvino

»The Oldenburg Film Festival, the German Sundance, is on a good track. Indeed on a very good one, because in terms of boldness and daring it is far ahead of the competition.«

- Welt am Sonntag
