Audi Short Film Award for “Genius Loci”
In “Genius Loci“ Reine, a young loner, wanders around the city at night. There is chaos everywhere: in her head and outside, in the big city. Things are taking on a life of their own. Young Reine is on the search, but she does not know what she is looking for. In delicate drawings and fluid animations, we see the world through her eyes and her perception becomes tangible.
The new Audi e-tron Sportback* opened the red carpet of the Berlin International Film Festival and used its new digital matrix LED headlights to project a video clip onto a screen as an act of homage to mark the 70th anniversary.
The Berlin International Film Festival awards the Audi Short Film Award in the Berlinale Shorts section. In addition to the Golden and the Silver Bears, this award is one of the most coveted awards at the 70th Berlin International Film Festival for short films.
A total of 24 films from 18 countries, curated by the new Head of Berlinale Shorts, Anna Henckel-Donnersmarck, were evaluated by the International Short Film Jury, consisting of Réka Bucsi (Hungary), Fatma Çolakoğlu (Turkey) and Lemohang Jeremiah Mosese (Lesotho). “United in a desire for freedom and innovation, Audi and the short film form an ideal alliance in the Berlinale Shorts competition,” says Anna Henckel-Donnersmarck. Different works that received the Audi Short Film Award in previous years formed part of the Berlinale Open House Program 2020.
