The long-standing collaboration between the Ji.hlava IDFF and the Audiovisual Producers’ Association (APA) will this year continue with the newly granted APA World Excellence Award for outstanding documentary film producers. The first person to receive the award will be Austrian producer Gabriele Kranzelbinder. Together with director Hubert Sauper, she won the EFA Award for Best Documentary for their We Come as Friends and, among other things, she also teamed up with experimenter Gustav Deutsch to shoot a film variation on paintings by American painter Edward Hopper. In Jihlava, Gabriele will join Czech filmmakers to discuss the possibilities of expanding and intensifying the so-far limited collaborations between the Czech Republic and Austria in the sphere of creative artistic film.
