A Tribute To...


Michael Haneke

With his artistically stringent, visually impressive and uncompromising films, Michael Haneke is regarded as one of the sharpest cinematic analysts of socio-moral maladies our time has seen. Raised in Vienna, this exceptionally talented screenwriter and director celebrated his cinema debut in 1989 with THE SEVENTH CONTINENT. Oscillating between German and French-language films, he has since amassed innumerable awards, including two Golden Palms at Cannes and an Oscar for his most recent film to date AMOUR (2012). By presenting its A Tribute to...  award to Michael Haneke, the Zurich Film Festival honours one of the most important auteur filmmakers of the present day. Haneke will accept the award in person during the Award Night on October 5.   

The ZFF pays homage to the filmmaker by screening five of his most important works and a film portrait. Michael Haneke will participate in a public ZFF MASTERS session at the Filmpodium on October 6, 11.00h. Tickets: click here
