Titel: Breaking News
A journalist is bored with the events around him in the quiet town he lives in. What can he do to make a big headline nonetheless?
In the category animation the jury was convinced by a project that will be a clear statement on the artist's responsability for society. In a simple story but with the visual power of animation a young and promising team from very different countries found a common language and a common topic. For its excellent collaboration and for trying to unmask the manipulative impact of mass media the Co-Production Prize 2011 with an amount of 70,000 € goes to the German-Russian-Kosovan project BREAKING NEWS.
