The Festival of 2011
The 2011 program featured more than 170 film premieres from more than 40 countries. The opening film is the internationally acclaimed »Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy« by Tomas Alfredson, the middle film is Andrea Arnold's brave Brontë portrayal »Wuthering Heights« and concludes Pedro Almodóvar's cross-genre »The Skin I Live In«. This year's Lifetime Achievement Award goes to the French actress Isabelle Huppert and the Stockholm Visionary Award is given to director Alejandro González Iñárritu. This year's film festival is dedicated to the recently deceased American director Sidney Lumet. Spotlight: Love Stories
This year's Spotlight is Love Stories. This universal theme features, among others, Drake Doremus' critically acclaimed »Like Crazy« with Jennifer Lawrence in one of the roles, Anne Fontaine's comedy »My Worst Nightmare« about love between class boundaries, and Tanya Wexler's star-studded »Hysteria«.

The first feature film scholarship in 2011 enables the film »Tenderness« by Sofia Norlin, which premieres two years later. The film is nominated for a Crystal Bear, competed at Tribeca Film Festival and received a Golden Bug for best photo in 2014.
