32nd edition of the European Film Awards – Winners

Last Saturday, December 7, the 32nd edition of the European Film Awards was held in Berlin (Germany), where Antonio Banderas won the award for best European actor, director Werner Herzog won the ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’, and French actress Juliette Binoche won the ‘European Achievement in World Cinema’ award.


The European Film Awards have been presented annually since 1988 by the European Film Academy to recognize excellence in European cinematic achievements.


In the musical section, composer John Gürtler won the ‘European Original Score’ award for his music for the movie ‘System Crasher / Systemsprengert’.


In the words of the jury:

“The music in SYSTEM CRASHER is modern, virtuosic, impulsive and surprising. John Gürtler has transformed the unspeakable into music. Where words are no longer possible, his film music manages to function as a non-verbal language, reflecting the inside of the protagonist and carrying the viewer along with it.”
