Who'd have guessed? Our film has been awarded BEST FEATURE FILM in Sydney! That was the main prize of the festival... long title: MARY SHELLEY BEST FILM AWARD. We thank and bow! It really couldn't have gone any better...


reactions from sydney

Yesterday our film was shown in Australia for the first time!

According to the festival team, about 100 people saw our film, which is a lot when you consider that it was a foreign-language, subtitled 113-minute film. We are also happy about first feedback, here for instance from a viewer via Facebook:

"I just watched 'Das Letzte Land' and love it! It is the 3rd film I’ve watched tonight in the festival but the best one!
I like the slow pace of storytelling and how it gradually builds the emotional connections with the two characters. I also like many of dialogues, short sentences, minimum words, but full of deep meanings and philosophic thinkings. My heart was tightly grabbed from the beginning to the end."

We had a great time at this year's SoundTrack_Cologne. Marcel and Oliver, who set our film to sound and music together, spoke in their panel with composer Hansjörg Kohli about our film, its sound design and score, showed film clips and also presented the everyday egg slicer, which they used to create some crazy sound effects.

SoundTrack_Cologne is an annual conference in Cologne focusing on music and sound in film, computer games and other media.


"ALIENS WELCOME!" opening day

Yesterday the "Aliens Welcome!" event series started and we were there. An exhibition on the german sci-fi phenomenon "Perry Rhodan" was opened and there was a live sci-fi audio play with german actor Charly Hübner. Apart from the program it was a very, very nice spot! Our film will be shown here in February 2020, as one of the last program items.

"'new wave' of german sci-fi auteurs emerging"

Less than two weeks more, then our film will have its Australia premiere at the SciFi Film Festival in Sydney! Today the festival has lost a few special words about his two (!) film contributions from Germany - yes, there are actually two. And by chance the other film "A Living Dog" was also (!) produced in North Rhine-Westphalia. Sometimes things happen...

They wrote:

"Having it’s Australian Premiere on Friday 6th at 8.30pm will be Marcel Barion’s The Final Land, a tense drama about two men (played by Torben Föllmer and Milan Pesl) philosophically at odds yet thrown together in an escape craft fleeing into deep space."

aliens welcome!

This weekend the event series "Aliens Welcome!" starts with all kinds of science fiction from NRW - a project of the "LWL-Literaturkommission für Westfalen" and the cultural estate Haus Nottbeck in Oelde. Mostly this means literature, but purely coincidentally there is also one film in the offer... plus a Q&A session with the makers, i.e. us. It's only towards the end of the series, on 29.2.2020, but if someone already wants to make a note of that... You can find the complete, very nice program here:
