Christian Frosch was rewarded for his documentary drama "Murer – Anatomy of a Process" as an important document of the unrefined Austrian Nazi past, which continues to this day. "Resistance projects can collapse, projects without resistance are already unsuccessful," Frosch believes.
Erste Bank MehrWERT-Filmpreis went to the Viennese company Sara Fattahi for his essay "Chaos" and Viennese Wolfgang Fischer for his "Styx" ex aequo homestead. They can spend each month in New York, where they will also have a retrospective in the antological film archive.

The director thanked him with a political video message and a promise: "The next beer is mine!" And finally, the FIPRESCI international film criticism award came to the political inventory of Cesar Vassy "Ne travaille pas." "I'm sorry I do not want to dance with you," Vassyies said through the video.
