After screenings at a number of prestigious festivals – Filmfest München, Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, Zürich Film Festival, 17th Festival du Cinéma Allemand, Paris and the Oldenburg Film Fest, youthful director Jan-Ole Gerster has proved with OH BOY that good cinema doesn’t necessarily have to come from Hollywood.

The Berlin based tragi-comedy not only wowed the jury at this year’s Oldenburg International Film Festival, picking up the German Independence Award, but also picked up the audience award, beating off a number of highly praised international titles. Meanwhile the film’s star, Tom Schilling, won the inaugural Seymour Cassel Best Actor award. In addition, the black and white movie also boasts a magnificent soundtrack.

It’s an honor to work with such a talented group of movie makers, as well as young, creative musicians like Get Well Soon, Cherilyn MacNeil aka Dear Reader and Dirk Dresselhaus.

OH BOY is released on the 1.11.2012!

Don’t miss it!
