Spot on, NRW!

Spot on, NRW!

The Spot on NRW! section is a chance to hear from figures who are generally more in the background: producers from NRW, who have worked a lot with female directors, are introduced individually and share their experiences, successes and challenges. The section provides a chance to see the local film industry from more of a feminist angle. In addition to the international dimension of IFFF Dortmund+Köln, the Festival wants to be effective in NRW and to bring local success stories to the fore.

The Festival welcomes this year Weydemann Bros. as its guests. The two brothers Jonas and Jakob Weydemann, from Hamburg, founded their production company in Berlin in 2008, followed by another office in Cologne in 2011. The talk will shed a light on the artistic visions of Weydeman Bros.

Following the discussion, we will see their production Tiger Stripes from their film catalogue; the Malaysian feature film is also part of this year’s Focus: Rage & Horror.

The Shoot – KHM & IFFF Dortmund+Köln Award for Female Artists of the Academy of Media Arts Cologne is also awarded within the section Spot on, NRW!
