Sijo Choi Kim receives 5th Amplifier Award in Dresden
Sijo Choi Kim from the expanded cinema class of Prof. Clemens von Wedemeyer and Mareike Bernien won the Verstärker Award and the Audience Award at the Verstärker Art Film Festival with her film "Gut integriert". The Verstärker Award was presented for the fifth time as part of the Jury Award, while three further places were decided in the public screening by the votes of the visitors present. This year's jury consisted of Carolin Quermann (Custodian of the Städt. Galerie Dresden), Christian Zimmermann (Location Scout) and guest juror (and winner of the 4th Verstärker Art Film Festival) Anna Ryzhkova.

The "Verstärker" film festival at GEH8 in Dresden is aimed at art students from the new federal states. In addition to its own exhibitions and projects, GEH8 repeatedly opens up its space to young artists and thus ensures better artistic production and presentation conditions in Dresden. With "Verstärker", a separate format has now been created that supports and honors up-and-coming artistic positions.
