Golden Eye to Thank You For Bombing

directed by Barbara Eder (Lotus-Film)
The film accompanies three correspondents to their working place in conflict areas and gives an insight in their daily routine aside from cameras and satellite phones - somewhere between bombing alarm, laundry and Bach flower therapy.

Special Mention to Gruber Is Leaving

directed by Marie Kreutzer (Allegro Film)
John Gruber is in his mid thirties, an egocentric, living life in the fast lane and sparing no expense. But all of a sudden he is thrown off track by a cancer diagnosis and by the person who unwillingly delivers the news: Sarah, a DJane from Berlin, who is not his type at all. Feelings just aren't Gruber's cup of tea and now, without having asked for them, he has more than ever before.
