On 26 September 2014 it finally happened. Intervideo Filmproduktion had invited filmmakers for the award ceremony of the 3rd Intervideo Young Talent Award to Mainz. The newcomers from morning had to come to pick up their trophies.

In the cinema the creative universe of the film juniors were unfolded, which under the competition's motto "Tomorrow we'll see - changes" presented successful experimental and ambitious on the way between fiction and documentary, between analysis and change, between experiment and reality in their films.

Professor Dr. Thomas Meder, jury member, awarded the first prize in the category fiction, which was given to "Room without a view" by Johannes Bachmann. Meder was saying in his statement, changes always first would begin in the mind. He also was impressed by the consistently high level of submissions.

Winner of the animation category was "Teatime" by Marcel Knüdeler, Thomas Schienagel, Marie Kister and Willfried Pollan, the show in its precise animated story that they control every element of the development process of this film genre. In the category documentation won "Loly H." by Marie Elisa Scheidt, and in the category experimental convinced "A Film" by Franziska Kabisch most the jury.

Many submissions revealed that the young filmmakers understand to visualize in movies their messages to the changes in society and to move something in the minds of others. Many of the films could not shown at the ceremony. But they will stay in mind of the sighting and organization team - such as the documentary "Ecuador with eyes closed" by Daniel Chamorro or the fictional work "After the first blaze" from Doria-Svetlana Achour. The secret movie favorite of Intervideo became the third place in the fiction category "97%" from Ben Brand.

After the award ceremony, the entertainment band TripAdLip occurs with real-time electro. They electrified not only the young guests on the dance floor, also brought the nearby "Meenzer Doom to wiggle".

We want to thank all the young filmmakers for their participation and all award winners for their attendance at the award ceremony.
