BEST DOKS – kinokino Audience Award 2024

We present to you the award winning film!

At this film screening, the winner of the kinokino Audience Award will be shown on the big cinema screen, which will be honoured on Saturday evening during the main award ceremony.

The winning film 2024 is JENSEITS VON SCHULD (DE 2024, Katharina Köster, Katrin Nemec, 79 min.):

The media call their son the “patient killer.” He was given a life sentence for his numerous crimes. Life goes on for his parents Ulla and Didi Högel but nothing is the same as before. They must accept the bitter truth, figure out how to cope with everyday life and reposition themselves in relation to their child. A compelling, precisely observed film about parenthood and love.
