Docudrama Meine Tochter Anne Frank (My daughter Anne Frank) wins award
The docudrama Meine Tochter Anne Frank, starring Mala Emde as Anne Frank and Götz Schubert as her father, Otto, was broadcast on the Das Erste channel in February 2015. The film uses feature scenes and interviews with her contemporaries to tell the story of the short life of Anne Frank.
"A moving film, a soothing and calm film, a triumph of gentle remembrance rather than a pompous commemoration." These were the words used by the jury to justify its decision to award the prize to the film Meine Tochter Anne Frank.
The film was produced by AVE Gesellschaft für Fernsehproduktion in cooperation with Hessischer Rundfunk (hr), WDR and rbb; hr-Filmförderung also provided financial support for the film. Esther Schapira was the editorial director for hr.
The German Academy of Performing Arts has awarded the TV Film Award to a German-language television film production since 1964, and the award ceremony has been held publicly at the FernsehFestival (television festival) since 1989.
