At the 67th edition of the German Film Awards in Berlin yesterday evening, the German Film Academy honored the MDM-funded films "24 Weeks", "Wild", "Paula" and "Heart of Stone" with a combined nine LOLAs.

The silver award for best feature film went to the drama “24 Weeks” by the Erfurt-born director Anne Zohra Berrached. The drama “Wild” by Nicolette Krebitz scooped up four prizes including the bronze Lola for best feature film. Moreover, Georg Friedrich received the award as the best actor in a supporting role. The prizes for best cinematography (Reinhold Vorschneider) and best sound design (Rainer Heesch, Cristoph Schilling, Martin Steyer) also went to “Wild”, which was chiefly shot in Halle (on Saale).

Christian Schwochoch’s drama “Paula” received Lolas for best costume and best set design, while “Heart of Stone” (directed by Johannes Naber) picked up the trophies for best score and best makeup and hairstyling.
