In addition to Ted Hope, we’re pretty amped to be able to announce the last two #VOFF Jury of Experts members: Nora Tschirner, German film actress and former television and radio presenter, as well as Finnish actor and film director of Iron Sky and a few of the brilliant Star Wreck movies, Timo Vuorensola.
Here is why they are joining up:
“Festivals are an ages-old medium which hasn’t really renewed since the time of the Internet. Actually, film festivals seem to be the very antithesis of an Internet era. The limitations to the specific time, date, format and availability are all redundant in today’s world. For this reason, I find Viewster’s festival a progressive, future-oriented, tech-savvy way to promote films in the terms of today, to the audiences of today.”
– Timo Vuorensola
“Successful European films often remain successes within their home markets. This is a pity because we Europeans can tell great stories. With #VOFF, Viewster offers a new and open window for films of any country to an international audience. The attractive prize money goes directly to the creatives without any complex structures or application processes, which is why I like the project.”
– Nora Tschirner
Nora, Timo and Ted will be screening the top10 #VOFF candidates and announce the winners on April 1st.
