Max Lang and Jan Lachauer

The day before the Academy Awards®, German Films, the German Consulate General and Villa Aurora held their traditional reception for the German Oscar®-nominees at the Villa Aurora. This year’s nominees were Max Lang and Jan Lachauer in the category of Short Animated Film.

The long-awaited rain storms struck during Oscar week, and the sky was overcast, but it did not deter about 300 guests to attend the party, among them being Angelika Flatz of the Austrian Chancelery, Andreas Trauts (MFG Filmfoundation) and Manon Bursian (Arts Foundation Sachsen-Anhalt). Oscar®- winner Volker Engel (Independence Day), Haifaa al Mansour and Uschi Obermaier celebrated the nominees as well.

The representative of German Films Oliver Mahrdt, the Director of Villa Aurora Margit Kleinman, Head of the Board of Villa Aurora Markus Klimmer and its Executive Director Annette Rupp welcomed the guests and introduced the nominees.

The reception was supported by German Films, Villa Aurora, the German Consulate General in Los Angeles, the Goethe-Institut Los Angeles, MFG Filmfoundation and the Arts Foundation of Sachsen-Anhalt.

The official sponsors were Sante Naturkosmetik, Air Berlin, Audi, Bosch, Engel & Völkers, VW, Volvic, Carpe Diem, Apolinaris and AMI.
