The 19th edition of Film|Neu, Washington's annual showcase of new cinema from Germany, Switzerland and Austria, took place January 21-27, 2011.
Following the closing film, Mahler on the Couch, guests enjoyed a closing party at the Goethe-Institut. Door prizes were raffled off. Congratulations to Adam, the winner of our Grand Prize, a language course here at the Goethe-Institut.
Film critic Eddie Cockrell announced the Audience Favorite Films. Third place goes to Matti Geschonneck's Berlin, Boxhagener Platz; second to the opening film, When We Leave; and the winner of this year's festival is Ralf Huettner's film production Vincent Wants to Sea.
