Source: Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and EnergyIn an online award ceremony this evening in the presence of Peter Altmaier, Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy, in the cinema in the Kulturbrauerei Berlin, the winners of the 53rd German Economic Film Prize of the Federal Ministry of Economics were honored Corona, our award ceremony must also take place virtually under very special, but no less creative conditions. The films awarded tonight show our current economic life and deal with current economic issues – often controversial. They explain complex economic relationships in a way that everyone can understand, they stir up, they stimulate, they question. The films thus provide important impulses for engaged discussions in politics, business and society. That is what makes them so valuable! I therefore warmly congratulate all the artists whose films have received awards today. ”The German Economic Film Prize is one of the oldest German film prizes and is awarded for film documentaries that approach economic issues in an interesting and understandable way. The German Business Film Prize has been an integral part of the Federal Government’s “Initiative for Culture and Creative Industries” since 2008. The following films were awarded the 2020 prize: In the “Economy well explained” category, the jury awarded two first places this year: “The Forum” , an exciting documentary about the 81-year-old founder of the World Economic Forum, and “D-Mark, Unity, Fatherland – The Difficult Legacy of the Treuhand”, an MDR production on the history of the Treuhandanstalt. In addition, the three-part ZDF miniseries “Prize der Freiheit “was awarded a special prize by the jury in this category. The best film in the” Economy well presented “category was awarded to” Das ist Pflege “, a production commissioned by the City of Hamburg. The film not only paints a very honest picture of this important professional group, but also conveys what is important in the care sector. In the “Young Films” category, “Discover Now”, a short image film by the German Adult Education Association, was selected as the best contribution of the Baden-Württemberg Film Academy. The 1st prize is endowed with 10,000 euros. Places 2 and 3 also received cash prizes. The complete list of the winners is available at: www.deutscher-wirtschaftsfilmpreis.de
