A film prize on innovation by Swiss Textiles
Over 40 young film creators and film students responded to the invitation of Swiss Textiles to participate in an innovation film competition under the motto of “The Golden Velvet”
A professional jury headed by Marco Solari, President of the Swiss Locarno film festival has chosen 12 outstanding teams – details on the teams, the innovator companies and the subjects of innovation can be had on the website mentioned below – and these were sent out on a Swiss textile expedition and the candidates have to create their ideas up to the end of August. Then the jury will examine the short films and six out of the twelve films will be among the finalists and they will be invited to the film premiere on November 15, 2012 in Zurich (CH). The winning team will be bestowed with a prize of CHF 30000 for the best filmed story on recent Swiss textile innovations. The film of the winners will afterwards be shown at a Zurich movie house and can be seen also from November 16, 2012 on the website of Swiss Textiles, the umbrella association of Swiss textile and clothing manufacturers.
