Swiss Oscar Screening


Together with SWISS FILMS and SRG SSR we organize the exclusive Swiss Oscar Screening @ ZFF, which takes place during the ZFF. In a closed screening, we show official AMPAS members the Swiss Oscar entry and aim to strengthen the candidate for the race for the golden trophy. Last year, the AMPAS audience included MGM bosses Pamela Abdy and Michael de Luca.

In the framework of the Zurich Summit we presented the Swiss Oscar candidate DRII WINTER in the presence of Michael Koch (director) and Christof Neracher (producer). The screening took place in a private setting at the Signau House. Following the screening, guests in attendance gathered for drinks before they were invited to join the traditional Zurich Summit Dinner to close out the weekend.

DRII WINTER (A Piece of Sky) – Michael Koch

In a remote Alpine village isolated from the outside world, young love is put to the test. Anna comes from the village and has a daughter from an earlier relationship, while Marco is an outsider from the flatlands hired by the mountain farmers to work the rugged land. Together they experience the joy of new love and the closeness of family. But when Marco suddenly starts losing control over his impulses and behaving erratically, a new tension rises in the community. Through the changing seasons and the harshness of life, Anna fights to preserve a love she believes can outshine even death.
