2017 :: The Revolutionary

For the first time in its history, the 2017 Retrospective was dedicated to a producer. And with nearly 100 films to his credit, the Maverick producer, Edward R. Pressman, received the 2017 German Independence Honorary Award. He launched the careers of such greats as: Brian de Palma, Terrence Malick, Oliver Stone, Abel Ferrara, & Katherine Bigelow.

»My alliance is with the filmmakers. It’s us against the world.«

- Edward R. Pressman

»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.«

- Sight and Sound
