A hotel room. A camera. For 6 Minutes and 66 seconds, young filmmakers are confronted with questions about the future of cinema. What turns out os a documentary experiment of a film-political change of perspective, reminiscent of Wim Winders’ “Chambre 666”. The presentation of the project by Julius Feldmeier is followed by a discussion: Which journeys do young filmmakers take to realize and convey their work despite the obstacles?
Julius Feldmeier had his breakthrough as the lead actor in Katrin Gebbes “Tore Tanzt”, which was screened in Cannes 2013 and for which he was awarded Best Actor at the Bundesverband Regie and Best Breakthrough Actor by the Bundesverband Schauspiel. “6 Minutes 66” is his directing debut.
Jakob Lass is one of the leading representatives of German Mumblecore. With “Love Steak” and “Tiger Girl” he managed two notable, mostly improvised feature films. He described his familiar manner of behaviour on set and shooting as “Fogma”. In “6 Minutes 66” he is one of the questioned filmmakers.
Tini Tüllmann received the Heinz-Badewitz-Prize awarded for the first time at the Hofer Filmtage 2016 for her privately financed directing debut “Freddy/Eddy” – a psycho thriller à la Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde – and designed a new model of direct sales.
Linus de Paoli studied at the dffb in Berlin. His graduation film “Dr. Ketel – Der Schatten von Neukölln” was already successful internationally at festivals. In 2014 the horror film “Der Samurai” came out, produced by him and Anna de Paoli. Additionally to his filmmaking he writes music for animated series and his rock band. His new and self-financed movie A Young Man with High Potential will premiere soon.
Urs Spörri is a film scholar, cultural manager and host of numerous festivals. For the German Filmmuseum in Frankfurt he curates the film programme with an emphasis on German film and is involved with the content of this congress. He is a column writer for kino-zeit.de on the developments of current German film scene.
