DOK.edit Award – presented by Adobe 2021: NEMESIS

In its first edition, this year's DOK.edit Award – presented by Adobe goes to editors David Charap and Thomas Imbach (also director) for their work on NEMESIS.

"It was the overall integrity and the composition of the story that convinced us", said the jury in their statement. "The quality of the film comes very much from a great editing job that turns a local and personal story into a universal one. It is also through the editing that a number of narrative layers are brought together brilliantly. By re-arranging reality, the film not only convinced the jury through the craft of editing but the art of editing." To the jurors

The DOK.edit Award – presented by Adobe is part of the new programme focus "Re:arranging Reality", which revolves around the post-production of documentary films. The programme focus is being developed in cooperation with the company Adobe. The new montage award is endowed with 5,000 euros and is sponsored by Adobe.
