Bildrausch 2017 has a wonderful jury!

Lav Diaz is synonymous with epic works that tackle the recent history of his native Philippines with creative breadth, power and complexity. The Dutch producer Ilse Hughan is a active in independent filmmaking in Latin America. Monika Willi’s talents as an editor have been relied upon by directors such as Michael Haneke, Josef Hader or the later Michael Glawogger, whose cinematic testament bears her signature.
