15th Porsche International Student Advertising Film Award: 


Qualifying is over – the race can now begin. From the 104 advertising films submitted from 13 countries, ten have made it onto the shortlist for the 15th Porsche International Student Advertising Film Award. The five-strong jury had the difficult task of choosing the ten nominated films from all the submissions – as always with no knowledge of who produced them.

Like last year, the jurors chose three films in the Mobility Category:

- Luca Homolka - “Born in Britain” - Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany
- Falk Poetz - “The Future is Everyone’s” - The Media Academy / Mittweida University, Germany
- Ben Miethke - “Benim Evim Sensin (Welcome Home)” - Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany

In the Classical Category / Other Formats section, a total of seven young advertising film talents are still in with a chance of winning one of the coveted awards:

- Lars Timmermann - “Black Stallion” - Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany
- Axel Morin - “Paris, Lyon, Marseille” - no film school affiliation, France
- Christian Schilling - “The Man with a Coin” - Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany
- Michael Kranz - “myBorder’s joyFence” - University of Television and Film, Germany
- Bernd Faass - “Tears in Heaven” - Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany
- Florian Reittner - “Moore Marsh, More Life” - Salzburg University of Applied Sciences, Austria
- Andreas Bruns - “Out of the Blue” - Graduate of the Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany

The fact that five productions and, in Andreas Bruns, one graduate from the Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg have made the shortlist proves once again the exceptional quality of training provided at the Advertising Film Department of the Ludwigsburg film school.

On the jury of international advertising film experts this year are Lyndy Stout (editor of 1.4, an online platform for short film talents, London), Lorenzo Cefis (CEO – Executive Producer, Filmmaster Productions, Milan), Britta Poetzsch (Chief Creative Officer Campaign, Track GmbH, Hamburg), Jacques Vereecken (Creative Executive Producer, The BoardRoom, Amsterdam) and Austen Humphries (Director, Rattling Stick, London). Oliver Hoffmann, Head of Marketing and Communication at Porsche AG, was also on the panel in the Mobility Category.

The award ceremony at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart/Zuffenhausen on 20 November 2018 marks a double anniversary: the Porsche Award is 15 years old and the Stuttgart car company is celebrating “70 years of Porsche sports cars”. The evening will be hosted by presenter, advertising expert and author Sebastian Merget, who has already presented the ADC Advertising Film Prize with great charm and humour this year.

With the non-profit Porsche International Student Advertising Film Award, the Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg as host (since 2016 in partnership with the National Film and Television School, UK) and Porsche AG as main sponsor offer junior advertising filmmakers around the world a platform on which to present their work and the chance to take the next step on the path to becoming successful professional filmmakers. The City of Ludwigsburg has also been supporting the event since the very beginning. Our international media partners this year are the specialist online publications shots and 1.4.
