The winner of the Special 75th Anniversary Prize at Cannes Film Festival Tori and Lokita celebrates its German premiere at the B3 Biennial of the Moving Image.

In Belgium today, a young boy and an adolescent girl who have travelled alone from Africa pit their invincible friendship against the difficult conditions of their exile.

Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne will be honored with the BEN Lifetime Achievement Award.

This year, Belgian-born filmmakers Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne will be honored with the BEN Lifetime Achievement Award, one of B3's two main prizes. Together, the Dardenne brothers have made numerous award-winning films as producers, screenwriters and directors, and belong to the exclusive club of filmmakers who have won multiple Palme d'Or awards at the Cannes Film Festival. Luc Dardenne will receive the B3 BEN Award in person on October 14 during the B3 opening and awards show. Furthermore, he will hold a Master Class together with the renowned film critic and journalist Jörg Taszman on Saturday, October 15.

BEN Award for Christa Sommerer & Laurent Mignonneau

Another main prize, the BEN for outstanding achievements in the visual arts goes this year to the artist duo Christa Sommerer & Laurent Mignonneau. A highly acclaimed retrospective has just been dedicated to them at the ZKM in Karlsruhe and the OK Offenes Kulturhaus in Linz. Their remarkable and enduringly current works are considered "classics of digital art" and inspire other artists through their cross-media approach and the active connection between technology, science and art, thus stimulating new ideas.

Sommerer & Mignonneau will also hold a Master Class on Saturday, October 15 and can be seen with one of their works in the B3 Moving Image Forum.

B3 Conference

Fashion for Bank Robbers- A project about contemporary masks curated by Carina Shoshtary

“The art of dressing a face has been a way of expression for as long as we can remember. Masks and makeup go hand in hand, one is an extension of the other, one can complete the other. They are fun, they can be inviting but they can also be intimidating. Fashion for Bank Robbers is a generous platform on Instagram for all who love this art form. Masks are a source of unlimited creativity and there is always the mystery of not knowing what’s hiding behind, but do we really want to know?”
- Peter Philips, Creative & Image Director of Christian Dior Makeup

B3 Conference - Focus on: DEMOCRACY

The Transformation of Democracy. An opportunity?
Tuesday, 18 October 2022, 02:30 PM – 04:00 PM

Following this year's focus on TRANSFORMATION, B3 Conference will take an in-depth look at questions of democracy as a form of state and socio-structural philosophy.

Due to the enormous transformation processes that society is currently undergoing, in our focus on democracy we explore which sociopolitical systems might take the lead in the world in the future. The question arises whether democracy is not increasingly decomposing itself democratically. What would this mean for society and the individual?

We are looking forward to an exciting panel, among others with Prof. Dr. Stephan Brunnhuber, which will deal with the topic The Transformation of Democracy. An opportunity?
