Audience Award

The Audience Award of Weihnachtsfilmfestival 2016 goes to:
TRAUSLĀ SIRDS / ALL MY DEAD by Astra Zoldnere from Latvia.
We sincerely congratulate on this outstanding short film which deals with the subject of being alone on Christmas in a very original way. The movie is an extraordinary love story that takes place in a morgue: a tale about urges and needs, spiced with a breeze of black humor just in the right moments.
Scriptwriter Harald Harzheim was present to receive the award.
