October 2019
GIRAFFE won the FIPRESCI PRIZE at the Viennale - big thanks to the Jury! 
Very happy and proud. 
Excerpt from the jury’s decision: The FIPRESCI award goes to a film that sublimely talks about personal and everyday history. Through a love story between the East and the West, the mature and the maturing, it skillfully – and as close to life as it gets – intertwines different times: the past, the present and the future. It does so through two powerful and opposing metaphors of human prowess and natural beauty, a tunnel and a giraffe. The prize goes to the film GIRAFFE by Anna Sofie Hartmann.

July 2019
GIRAFFE will have its world-premiere  the 72th Locarno Film Festival in the section Fuori Concurso.
