FIRST SCRIPT LAB PROJECT TRAVELS THE WORLD
“NEVRLAND” by Gregor Schmidinger awarded internationally
For the past 6 years the FFKB Script Lab has taken place before and during the festival week – and has already been able to support and promote the first promising talents on their journey!
First and foremost, we need to mention Gregor Schmidinger with his debut feature NEVRLAND. Following his participation in the first Script Lab in 2014, the young Upper Austrian was able to win the Austrian production company Orbrock for his project and received funding from ÖFI, ORF Film-Fernsehabkommen and Film Fund Vienna.
NEVRLAND celebrated its world premiere at the prestigious Film Festival Max Ophüls Prize, where it was awarded two prizes: the Prize of the Youth Jury, as well as the Prize for the Best Newcomer for the exceptional talent Simon Frühwirth – who until then had never been in front of a camera.
The film continues its journey at international festivals, the Austrian theatrical release is planned for autumn 2019.
We wish all the best and look forward to discovering more talents during the FFKB Script Lab!
