CORSAGE GOES CANNES!!
We are delighted that the world premiere of CORSAGE by Marie Kreutzer will take place at the Festival de Cannes 2022 in the category UN CERTAIN REGARD. We want to thank our amazing crew, the fantastic cast and all supporters who have accompanied us on this exciting journey into the world of Empress Elisabeth.
Environmental sustainability is not just a fad, it is a necessity. Sustainability doesn't make anything impossible - it requires a different way of thinking and changing the "usual procedures" to get to the same result.
We like to cultivate this different way of thinking and are therefore all the more pleased to meet the criteria of the Austrian Ecolabel for Green Producing.
Marie Kreutzers first Landkrimi VIER will air on Jan 18th 2022 at 20:15 for the first time on ORF1.
The DVD is also available at the HOANZL Shop.
VIER also won the TV-Beaver for best TV-Film at the Filmfestival Biberach in 2021.
