The Final Land

"The Final Land" ("Das letzte Land") is a German independent science fiction film. It is about two outlaws fleeing a desolate planet in a small old spaceship and searching for a better place in space.

The project was initiated by a group of independent filmmakers from North Rhine-Westphalia and supported by almost 300 people via crowdfunding. Within one and a half years, a life-size spaceship set was built for the indoor shots and a small model for the outdoor shots. The shooting took place in 2014, the post-production lasted until the end of 2018.
Only practical effects were used, computer-generated images were deliberately avoided. The sound design is completely based on sound recordings of real, old things. The score unites classical instruments with synthesizer sounds and noises from unusual sources.

The world premiere took place on 15 January 2019 at the "40th Filmfestival Max Ophüls Preis" in Saarbrücken, Germany, took part in the competition for the "Best Feature Film" and was nominated for several awards, including "Best Director" and "Best Screenplay". Actor Torben Föllmer was also one of the eight nominees in the category "Best Young Actor". In the course of the festival the film was shown a total of eight times.
At the "Berlin Independent Film Festival" in February 2019 the film was awarded the "Best Sci Fi - Horror Feature". In May 2019 it was shown twice at the "Neisse Film Festival" and had its UK premiere at the "Sci-Fi-London Film Festival". The italian premiere took place in June at the "Oltre lo Specchio - Festival dell'immaginario fantastico e di fantascienza" in Milan and was awarded the "Most Original Film".
