June 3 👏 Congratulations! Today, "Die Wannseekonferenz" (The Conference), authors: Magnus Vattrodt, Paul Mommertz, director: Matti Geschonneck won the CIVIS Media Prize 2022 in the Entertainment category. Jury's remarks: "The film sticks closely to the authentic minutes of a conversation about the organisation of a mass murder. But this is much more than a window into the past. The film, depressingly brought to life by great actors, is a reminder of how far a dehumanized bureaucracy is capable of going. At the same time, it is a warning of evolving inhumanity in some right-wing discourse today."
The full award ceremony here, starting at 37 minutes into ; the laudator is former German Federal President Joachim Gauck.
CIVIS - Europe's Media Prize for Migration, Integration and Cultural Diversity and – linked to this – social cohesion in Europe honours programme achievements in radio, television and the Internet which promote peaceful coexistence in the European immigration society. All winners

An unconventionally kitsch-free and unsentimental treatment of coping with grief. A whole year went by before musician Juliane Hansen (Anna Schudt) was able to put her running shoes back on — a year after her partner, Johann König (Maximilian Brückner), took his own life. Although her friend Rieke (Katharina Wackernagel) offers all the support she can, Juliane feels lonely and listless. Now, running and panting, she begins to confront her thoughts, which constantly revolve around Johann, and to allow new vitality to enter her life. Source
