The Final Land


thx filmz

Here we are, together with Lorenz Wurdinger and Lukas Dominik from FILMZ - Festival des deutschen Kinos (Festival of german cinema) in front of the beautiful cinema Capitol in Mainz - sometime in the night from 2. to 3.11. - happy about a well attended screening and a rich Q&A. Many thanks for everything to the whole FILMZ team!


screening + Q&A at filmz in mainz

That was a good evening yesterday at FILMZ, the screening was very well attended despite the late hour, the cinema really beautiful, old and spacious. Most of the audience also attended the Q&A - we were there with five people: Main actor Torben Föllmer, assistant director Carolin Utsch, composer Oliver Kranz, production designer Philipp Bojahr and director Marcel Barion.

It was also nice to finally meet our logo designer Danilo Vogt in person, who designed the fictitious logo for the fictitious company "Novocosm", which can be seen here and there in the film - flickering on computer screens or embroidered on the ship's overalls...


filmz go

FILMZ has begun.

Our screening takes place on November 2, at 22 pm in the cinema "Capitol". We take part in the feature film competition and should probably bring the only (long) genre film to the festival - there is a completely different programme than at the gory Razor Reel. Here's the program!

With several crew members we will be present and of course offer a Q&A round again - for after the film. So who lives not far from Mainz... see you on Saturday!


thanks razor reel

We had some very good days in Bruges! Thanks a lot, (from left to right) Joke Ruysschaert, mastermind Patrick Van Hauwaert, Jordy Vmt and Raf Geusens for your work and the platform you gave our film - and of course for good conversations, Belgian beer and Razorreel spaghetti!


bruges and films

Wonderful setting for our Belgian premiere here at the Razor Reel in Bruges! Not only because of the city, but also because of the dazzling program - yesterday after our film we saw the bloody "Come to Daddy" with Elijah Wood and now we have "Ghostbusters"!


belgian premiere

Bruges is really great! And our Belgian premiere at the Razor Reel Flanders Film Festival is now over, with a very lively Q&A session after the screening. Many thanks to our host Jordy for the nice panel!


razor reel begins

Today the Razor Reel Flanders Film Festival begins in the beautiful city of Bruges and our film is nominated for the Young Blood Award - have a look at page 13 of the festival catalogue! The screening, which is also our Belgian premiere, will take place on Saturday (26.10.), at 15:30 (!


participation at berlin sci-fi filmfest

Very nice! After Bruges (Razor Reel Flanders Film Festival / 24.-29.10.) and Mainz (FILMZ - Festival of German Cinema / 1.-8.11.) comes Berlin again: At the end of November the Berlin Sci-Fi Filmfest will take place and we will be there - (again!) in the wonderful cinema BABYLON! On you can inform yourself already...


diabolique magazine review

Amazing review by Joseph Perry, who saw our film at this year's Lund International Fantastic Film Festival (Diabolique Magazine):

"...Föllmer and Pesl are both superb in this two-hander, which naturally relies heavily on the actors to carry the weight of the film. Föllmer portrays Adem with a sort of reserved, optimistic melancholy, while Pesl invests his brusque alpha male with a manic obsessiveness.

Writer/director/cinematographer/editor Marcel Barion — who also did the breathtaking visual effects, which include gorgeous shots of outer space — creates a tense, claustrophobic setting within the spaceship, aided greatly by Massimo Muller’s masterful set design. The controls have a decidedly retro feel to them, and though there seems to be barely any room to move around inside the spacecraft, it is full of mazes of wires, as well as cryptic surprises. Barion and Oliver Kranz’s sound design is superlative, with each swipe of something dusty or dingy giving off sounds that practically make you feel the decay and squalor. The Final Land, a bold feast for the senses, is a mesmerizing journey that pits the wills and minds of two men against each other, themselves, and enigmatic outside forces."

razor reel - program

On the poster of this year's Razor Reel Flanders Film Festival you will find, if you take a closer look, the skeletons of all sorts of fantastic to horrible characters right across the history of film... And so is the programme. Besides latest movies like ours (running on 26.10.) you can also see "Mad Max" (1979), "Ghostbusters" (1984) or even "Attack of the 50 Foot Woman" (1958)... We will be there in any case! All movies at a glance can be found at:
