2011 Angelus Student Film Festival grand prize winner and Hamburg Media School grad Max Zähle, who was awarded the fest’s Patrick Peyton Excellence in Filmmaking Award for RAJU, has been nominated for an Oscar for Best Live Action Short.
Moreno points out that Zähle is another in the growing number of Angelus awardees who have gone on to be tapped for the Oscar. In fact, the three past Academy Awards® ceremonies have had Angelus winners among the nominee roll call, with the 2010 Angelus grand prize winner, Luke Matheny of New York University, bringing home the gold for his thesis film GOD OF LOVE. Also nominated in 2009 and 2008 were Gregg Helvey for KAVI and Reto Caffi for ON THE LINE, respectively.
Filmmaker Max Zähle will be in Park City during the Sundance Film Festival and will be present for a Q&A following a 5:30 pm screening of his Oscar-nominated film at the Windrider Forum on Saturday, Jan 28th at Mountain Vineyard located at 1401 Kearns Boulevard in Park City.
