Erste Bank’s ExtraVALUE Film Award 2019 goes to Elsa Kremser and Levin Peter for Space Dogs and to Friedl vom Gröller for L'Avenir? De F.v.G.?.
In 2011 Erste Bank’s ExtraVALUE film award was bestowed for the first time. The Erste Bank ExtraVALUE laureates are chosen by an independent jury among the Austrian film makers and producers that are presented throughout the Viennale. This year the award was given away for the ninth time.
The prize includes a residency in New York and a presentation of the winner’s work in the Anthology Film Archive. Erste Bank’s ExtraVALUE Film Award is realized in collaboration with the Viennale, the Deutsches Haus at NYU, and the Austrian Cultural Forum New York.
Upon the jury’s recommendation, the Erste Bank ExtraVALUE Film Award 2019 will be awarded to two films and include a one-month stay respectively in New York for the directors.
