The first film In-Competition was screened yesterday evening in front of a full house made out primarily of children and their parents. The film screened was FIDDLESTICKS, directed and produced by Veit Helmer, from Germany.
In the audience there were also present actor Florin Opritescu from Madrid, producer Miguel Baretto from Paris, producer and cinematographer Edward Button from New York, producer Elio Dell’Unto from Toronto, actress Andreea Dumitru and actor Andrei Neamtu from Brasov.
FIDDLESTICKS is an amazing film for children. It is a very sophisticated and elaborated production. The cast is composed by both adults and children.
Bollersdorf town is average. Its citizens take great pride in being average and go to great lengths to remain average. The children of Bollersdorf have had a bellyful of average and with the help of their pet coati they set about freeing their grandparents from the local old folks’ home. A hilarious caper ensues to create a new world record to put Bollersdorf on the map and make it a centre of technology.
The film is starring Benno Furmann, Fritzi Haberland, Alexander Scheer and Rolf Zacher. Brasov International Film Festival has screened the Romanian version of the movie (dubbed in Romanian language).
Following the screening, Daria Trifu and actress Denisa Barvon have interviewed some of the kids present.
