“A movie like a journey filled with detours, decisions, and longings.”



The film Broker has won the ARRI Award at the FILMFEST MÜNCHEN. The film festival said, “This film is a journey. One filled with longings, with decisions, with detours. Sometimes it is precisely these detours that we must take in life to find ourselves and each other. And we found a bit of ourselves in this film.” The festival continued, “When every character, no matter how small or large, is intricately layered, simultaneously fractured and in the end so lovingly developed, that’s cinema. Great cinema,” explaining why they chose the movie as the winner. 


The FILMFEST MÜNCHEN, founded in 1983, is Germany's leading international film festival along with the Berlin International Film Festival, and the 39th FILMFEST MÜNCHEN was held in Munich, Germany, from June 23 to July 2. The ARRI Award is the top prize of the festival and is awarded to one of 10 films that won the CineMasters competition.
