Editing Award 2013 for REVISION

We are happy to anounce that Philip Scheffner was awarded the editing award
BILD-KUNST SCHNITTPREIS 2013 for the editing of the film REVISION
.

The jury’s statement:

„In his documentary crime story Philip Scheffner uses the edit to disclose the general constructedness of reality and memory. His editing emphasizes blank spaces and contradictions; due to a constant transparency of filmic means, the documentary work is thus revised itself. We congratulate Philip Scheffner to this unique piece of work.”
