for Best Short Documentary, Best Directing in a Short Documentary and Best Editing in a Short Documentary

From the Film Festival of Cannes, American Documentary Film Festival, River Film Festival in Italy and Goa Short Film Festival to Southhampton Inernational Film Festival…the true tale of the incredible love between Erika and Emil Shomrony, who survived the Holocaust and World War II, knows no bounds!

 

“Shattered Night/Zersplitterte Nacht” – Tyrolean Commemorative Culture on a European Level!

For the 79th time we commemorate the horrors of the November Pogroms of 1938! In “Zersplitterte Nacht – Shattered Night” contemporary witnesses, those who remember to this day, tell their stories of that fateful era of inexpressibly atrocious and murderous times. As the AVG Filmteam we can only bow to them and express our deepest thanks also to our sponsors: Austrian Cultural Forum Brussels, Austrian National Bank Brussels, Tyrol – Sout Tyrol – Trentino Euroregion and the Province of Tyrol! Because they are the ones that make it possible to reach European scales in Brussels with our touching and didactically valuable work. Heartfelt gratitude also goes to Richard and Andrew Benson from London, the grandchildren of Ing. Richard Berger who was murdered in the Pogromnacht of Innsbruck in 1938. They as well as many honored guests have joined us in Brussels. We also thank all the cinemagoers and everyone who is interested in our work.

“3 Days in Rome” at the American Documentary Film Festival 2017

In “3 Days in Rome” Erika Shomrony tells us her true story of how love was able to endure and overcome the atrocities of the Holocaust and the Second World War. International star Sharon Stone also participates in one of the best documentary film festivals in the world with “An Undeniable Voice”, a movie about a holocaust survivor. Another strong message on just how important it remains to talk about the Holocaust in films – for the present and for a better future.
