Cinergy with young German speaking filmmakers

During DAS FILMFEST 2016 the project Cinergy will present the debate about how to get from film school to festival circuit (only in English) with young filmmakers from Germany and Austria - Carl Gerber ("24 Wochen"), Daniel Hoesl ("WINWIN") and Aron Lehmann ("Kohlhaas").

Daniel Hoesl

... born 1982, studied multimedia arts before working as assistant director for Ulrich Seidl. He has been involved in a big number of art projects, collective film conspiracies, in the blowing up of buildings and the screaming interpretations of Franz Schubert’s songs. He’s a long distance swimmer globally exploring pools crawling back and forth. His debut feature Soldate Jeannette premiered at Sundance film festival and was awarded the Tiger award at Rotterdam film festival. His main concerns oscillate around the value and the price of money. WINWIN is his second feature film as co-conspirator of the European Film Conspiracy.

Carl Gerber

...studied screen-writing at Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg, where is also organized a workshop about Storytelling. He wrote and directed a number of short films. His screenplay for the film 24 weeks (2016) was premiered at the Berlinale 2016 in the main competition at the Berlinale. 24 Weeks (24 Wochen) is German drama film directed by Anne Zohra Berrached which centered on the dilemma faced by a woman who is already six months pregnant when she learns that her unborn child will have Down's syndrome as well as a serious heart defect. Should she be able to choose the option of a late-term abortion?

Aron Lehmann

...born in Wuppertal/ Germany in 1981, he grew up on the bavarian countryside where he has always dreamt of telling stories and stage them. After his final degrees he moved to Berlin where he worked for several tv production companies from 2003 until 2005 before starting his film studies at the „Hochschule für Film und Fernsehen Konrad Wolf in Potsdam-Babelsberg. The feature film „Lehmann’s Kohlhaas“ was his diploma film with the premier at Munchen Film Festival. After that it becomes the film of the year in the festival circuit. In 2016 he premiered his third film The Last Pig.
