Zombie Film ‘Rammbock’ Takes German Top Editing Award

Silke Olthoff wins Schnitt prize for her work on director Marvin Kren’s horror/romance mash-up.

COLOGNE, Germany – Silke Olthoff took top honors at this year’s Schnitt Awards for her editing of Marvin Kren’s Berlin zombie movie Rammbock. The jury, which included last year’s Schnitt winner Monika Willi (The White Ribbon), praised Olthoff’s successful splicing of the horror and romance genres. “The zombie invasion is terrifyingly believable while the love story truly touching,” the jury said in a statement. “Both strands hold and build tension until the (film’s) finale.”

The Schnitt Prize for best documentary went to Stephan Krumbiegel and Volker Sattel for their editing of Sattel’s atomic energy doc Under Control while the up-and-coming honor went to Rolf Hellat for his edit of Corina Schingruber’s short film I ovo je Beograd.
