We did it! Our film The Best of All Worlds was presented to the public for the first time as part of the Perspektive Deutsches Kino at the 67th Berlinale.
The premiere took place on 11 February 2017, with two sold-out screenings following on Sunday. The press screening had generated great applause, and at the premiere there was not a dry eye in the house; the standing ovations clearly showed that the audience liked our film.
Adrian Goiginger’s story is touching and gives hope at the same time. We (the whole team present) were completely overwhelmed by the many positive reactions. It was an incredible event, and we’d like to thank all those who took part.
After such an exciting weekend the question was how the critics and the media in general would react to The Best of All Worlds. Here are a few of the highlights:
