German Film Academy to fete Hauff

Helmer won Golden Bear in 1986 for 'Stammheim'

BERLIN — The German Film Academy will honor helmer Reinhard Hauff for his services to education at the German Film Awards in Berlin on July 8.

Hauff founded production company Bioskop Film with Volker Schlondorff and Eberhard Junkersdorf in 1973 and directed the 1986 Berlin Golden Bear winner “Stammheim.”

He left helming in 1993 to become director of Berlin’s DFFB film and television academy. Film Academy prexy Guenter Rohrbach, a member of the jury that chooses recipients of the award, said the jury was especially moved by the fact that “Hauff, at the height of his career, decided to give up directing and devote himself with all his power and passion to the education of young filmmakers.”

Hauff resigned in April but remains DFFB director emeritus.
