The media company PANTAFLIX AG is today announcing a comprehensive partnership with the 99FIRE-FILMS AWARD. The event, which is being held for the tenth time, gives creative young filmmakers a stage and is the biggest short film and content creator competition in the world. Entrants have just 99 hours to produce a 99-second film on a given subject.
As an official partner, PANTAFLIX will be making all the films submitted for the 99FIRE-FILMS AWARD available online for the first time and, to mark the competition’s tenth anniversary, will also be streaming the best films from the first ten years of the 99FIRE-FILMS AWARD. Matthias Schweighöfer and Dan Maag, filmmakers and founders of PANTAFLIX AG, will be part of the jury and help decide who will receive the awards in the categories “Best Idea”, “Best Camera” and “Best Film”. The awards will be presented on 21 February at the Berlinale.
“It’s great to be part of this special creative competition,” said Matthias Schweighöfer, actor, producer and director. “It gives young filmmakers a unique opportunity to show what they can do and to reach a large audience.”
“At PANTAFLIX, we are proud to be a partner to this innovative competition format,” added Dan Maag, CEO of PANTAFLIX AG. “The creative and unusual short films of the 99FIRE-FILMS AWARD are a great addition to our extensive content range. Once again, this allows us to show off the diversity that we stand for – PANTAFLIX offers a unique portfolio that you won’t find on other platforms.”
All the films submitted and the best films from ten years of the 99FIRE-FILMS AWARD will be available on PANTAFLIX soon.
