Last Updated: September 29, 2014 10:57 pm GMT
(München--September 29, 2014) Last Tuesday, the 10th anniversary staging of cinec came to an end. Business was brisk from a professional audience willing to spend its money and this created a great atmosphere for the exhibitors. The high class, varied and informative ancillary program was highly appreciated by the international audience.

Once again, the pick of the highlights was the cinecAwards ceremony held in the Emperor’s Hall (Kaisersaal) of Munich’s Residenz on the evening of the second day of the trade fair. The awards were presented by Ms. Ilse Aigner, Bavarian State Minister of Economic Affairs and Media, Energy and Technology.

The constant innovative spirit of the industry was evidenced by the quality of the 43 submissions for the award. Nine nominees were decorated for their achievements in development – seven with a technology award and the other two with the Special Award for “a clever idea”. All of the nominees offered innovations that will support and facilitate the highly complex work of film-makers.

There was a minor mistake regarding the categories in the first news flash sent during the ongoing trade fair, here is the corrected list:
