Audi Short Film Award for “Rise”
- The International Short Film Jury makes award to director duo Bárbara Wagner and Benjamin de Burca at the 69th Berlinale
- Jason Lusty, Head of Marketing Germany at AUDI AG: “For us, short films represent the experimental and progressive. They show what is state of the art at the moment”
- Berlinale Open House networks the public with innovative thinkers and avant‑gardists through a various program of talk and culture at the Audi Berlinale Lounge
The winner of the Audi Short Film Award at the 69th Berlin International Film Festival, with prize money of €20,000, is “Rise” by Bárbara Wagner and Benjamin de Burca. The International Short Film Jury in the Berlinale Shorts section thus honors the signature style of a lively and experimental documentary that puts the spotlight on the texts, music and dance of a group of young People of Color as an act of self-empowerment. They occupy the public space of the subway in Toronto to perform their concept of edutainment.
