Waiting for the winners…

And this year, finally, here we are again! On Thursday, April 11, the usual press conference of the Akademie des Österreichischen Films (chaired by director Arash T. Riahi and actress Verena Altenberger) took place, at which the nominations for the Österreichischer Filmpreis 2024 were announced. A large number of films were nominated again this year (a total of 31 feature films, 15 documentaries and 14 feature films) and, as usual every year, there is one film in particular that stood out due to the high number of nominations it received. The award ceremony will take place on June 5 at the Wiener Rathaus.

As far as this edition of the Österreichischer Filmpreis 2024 is concerned, then, as already mentioned, there is one film in particular that stood out above the others, having garnered no less than 11 nominations. We are talking about the excellent The Devil’s Bath, directed by Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala and already presented as a world premiere at the Berlinale 2024. Adrian Goiginger’s feature film Rickerl, which was nominated in seven categories, received just as much satisfaction, while Hans Steinbichler’s A Whole Life, Elisabeth Scharang’s Woodland and Sudabeh Mortezai’s Europa can be equally satisfied, having received four nominations each.

Wanting to remain in the field of feature films, however, a brief reflection must be made. Given the presence of Sparta (Ulrich Seidl‘s newest, controversial work) among the nominated films, it is very surprising that this work received only one nomination (Best Director), despite its high artistic quality. Specifically, there were many who noticed the excellent (and by no means easy) performance of Georg Friedrich, who, however, in this edition of the Österreichischer Filmpreis 2024 was unfortunately not nominated in the Best Actor in a Leading Role category. But that’s fine. We will have to see who of his (equally good) colleagues will be awarded this year.

Three documentaries especially were particularly acclaimed at these Österreichischer Filmpreis 2024. We are talking about Souls of a River by Chris Krikellis (3 nominations) Who is afraid of Hitler’s Town? by Günter Schwaiger and 27 Storeys by Bianca Gleissinger (2 nominations). And considering the large number of documentaries produced each year in Austria, we can imagine how the Akademie had no easy task in choosing the best ones.

Taking all the nominated films into consideration, therefore, it is interesting to note that this year, too, each of the works stood out not only for its own, well-marked personality, but also for a particular courage in experimenting with new languages without being afraid to deal with decidedly controversial and often problematic topics. This is a sign that Austrian cinema really has a lot to offer and that it is not afraid to differentiate itself from what is produced in the rest of the world, constantly seeking its own way. And fortunately, the rest of the world is also finally realising this.

Until we find out which film will be awarded this year, therefore, we only have to wait a little less than two months. In the meantime, here are all the nominations for the Österreichischer Filmpreis 2024. Good luck to all the nominees!
