'Stopped on Track' Editor Wins German Schnitt Honor
Jorg Hauschild takes Germany's premiere film editing prize.
COLOGNE, Germany - Jorg Hauschild has won Germany's leading film editing honor, the Schnitt Prize, for his editing of Andreas Dresen's Stopped on Track.
The drama, about a father dying of brain cancer, took Cannes' Un Certain Regard prize last year and was the big winner of this year's German Film Awards, winning Best Film, Best Director and the Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor trophies.
Inge Schneider won the Best Documentary Edit for her cut of Raising Resistance, from directors Bettina Borgfeld and David Bernet, which looks at the struggle of Latin American farmers against the expanding production of genetically modified soy in South America. This is the second Schnitt prize for Schneider, who won in the same category in 2004 for Andres Veiel's Addicted to Acting.
The MMC Independent prize for up-and-coming editors went to Kathrin Dietzel for her edit of Youdid Kehveci's short film Uber rauhem Grund (Above Rough Ground).
