Last night saw a pared-down, corona-safe version of the FIRST STEPS Awards ceremony take place in Holzmarkt in Berlin and live-streamed to audiences on ARD Mediathek & Das Erste. Amongst the 2021 prize-winners was Sara Fazilat (BT 2017) who picked up the NO FEAR Award for "Nico", which she produced, starred in and co-wrote with Francy Fabritz (BT 2021).
And those weren't the only familiar faces! The Michael Ballhaus Prize was awarded to "Postkids", starring Maj-Britt Klenke (BT 2020). Congratulations to all our fab filmmakers!
