The Final Land



Today, Marcel spent the whole day working on the subtitles that will one day be available on DVD/Bluray. There were 652 English subtitles processed (thanks to Frank Bongiovanni from Münster, born in New York City, for your work!) and another 652 Italian ones (very good that we have them - thanks to Stefano Locati from Milan!) Then (for the sake of completeness) German ones were created AND of course German ones for the hearing impaired. There were a few less at first, because the logbook entries are already German. But then there came more, because "noises" were added, like *storm*, *dull steps* or...  *explosion*! Correct reading, explosion...


contribution at boston scifi

2020 is off to a good start! We have an invitation from the Boston Science Fiction Film Festival, the oldest international genre film festival in America (this year they will be 45 years old). From February 7th to 17th, about one hundred short and long science fiction films will be shown - and ours will run on February 9th, at 9 pm, as one of 6 films from Europe. So this would be our "New England Premiere", elsewhere we have already read "East Coast Premiere".

So there is no time to take a deep breath, all preparations are already underway, the hard disk with the film is already in the mail and the program on the Boston website is already online...!


2019 throwback

In 2019 our film was shown at 12 very different film festivals, half of them in Germany, the other half in England, Italy, Sweden, Belgium, Australia and the USA. We were able to bring home five awards, there were 10 very gratifying reviews and countless conversations and encounters. And if you also include the three special events at the Viktoria Kino and the screening in Denmark, there were a total of 25 screenings - with about 2200 viewers.


awarded the "best feature production design"

We are among the winners of the Parsec Awards of the Other Worlds Film Festival in Austin, Texas! "BEST FEATURE PRODUCTION DESIGN" for our old core team Johannes Bade, Marcel Barion, Massimo Müller and Philipp Bojahr - and their work in world construction, i.e. equipment, costume, models, other miniatures and of course spaceship scenery!

Here the official list of award winners!



back again - best festival

We're back home - and happy to say, that Other Worlds Austin 2019 was a vibrant experience! This was really a dedicated and very well organized festival crew - you see most of them in the picture: Reid Lansford, Eric Harrelson, Tessa Morrison, Jordan Brown, Robyn Paxman, Dan Repp und Debbie Cerda.

Very good programming, just the right kind of cinema, many events and opportunities to get together, and then of course many people who attended, filmmakers and movie buffs, all of them nice and intriguing characters. At this point many thanks and greetings to the "Diner's group" (other picture): Phillip and Chloe Carroll ("The Honeymoon phase") and Blaise Hossain, Brian Silverman and Aleem Hossain ("After We Leave")!


other world's ending

After our second screening at Other Worlds, which also went very well, the festival ended with a wonderful closing party. It was really a bit sad to have to say goodbye to so many nice people in the end, like Andrew here from Seattle. Tomorrow Caro and Marcel will go on a short tour through Texas for another three days - before they return to wet and cold Germany...


danish AND north american premiere

The one photo shows our film poster on the wall in Denmark, at the Empire Bio cinema in Copenhagen. On the other, several are lying on a table in the middle of Texas and are offered for sale - at the Other Worlds Austin. Thanks to Henrik Neumann, who sent us the first one yesterday, before the Denmark-Premiere. The other one was shot personally and on-site here in the US. It's awesome here. Today we're going to watch several other movies and tomorrow there's a second The Final Land Screening, again with Q&A, on 7:40 pm...

other worlds has begun

Tonight the Other Worlds Film Festival in Austin, Texas, finally began. And Caro and Marcel were there with jetlag! The launch film was "Dreamscape", the 35th anniversary screening, in a crowded and wonderful cinema with incredibly well padded seats - and a Q&A with director Joseph Ruben and author David Loughery, which was most of all funny.

Tomorrow our first screening will take place at 4:15 pm local time (11:15 pm in Germany)...


other worlds film festival + sci-fridays screening in denmark

We continue directly to Berlin. The Other Worlds Film Festival in Austin, Texas starts in a few days and the Copenhagen cinema Empire Bio shows our film this weekend in its Sci-Fridays series. So on 6.12. our North American premiere AND our Danish premiere will take place at the same time...!

In Austin there will be a second screening on 8.12. by the way. The program includes a wide range of sci-fi movies, mostly current productions, but also some old treasures.

One highlight will definetely be to meet Nicholas Meyer, whose "Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country" happened to have a decisive influence on our film, especially concerning the prison planetoid Rura Penthe...
