Bayerischer Filmpreis 2016

Bayerischer Filmpreis 2016

On 15 January 2016, the Bayerischer Filmpreis (Bavarian Film Awards) ceremony was held for the 37th time in Munich's Prinzregententheater. The teams from ARRI Media congratulate the award winners on their outstanding achievements. 


The Bayerischer Filmpreis is second only to the Deutscher Filmpreis in terms of prestige and prize money in the German film industry. It is awarded by the Bavarian Ministry of State. 

ARRI was involved in many of the award-winning productions again this year, and the teams from ARRI Media would like to express their gratitude to their clients for choosing us and for the excellent collaboration. We already look forward to the next projects ahead. 


Very special congratulations go out to Molly von Fürstenberg, who received the Award of Honor this year for her life's work. Molly von Fürstenberg is a producer and co-founder of Olga Film in Munich, and she has been a faithful partner to ARRI for many years. We consider ourselves fortunate to have been a part of so many of this wonderful entrepreneur's projects.
