Auszug aus der Jury-Entscheidung

Should all the books with Giovanni Spagnoletti’s name on the cover, as either author or editor, be stacked in a tower, the sheer size would itself be humbling. His extraordinarily wide-ranging output encompasses the films of Robert Bresson and Stanley Kwan, the national cinemas of South Korea, Argentina, Russia and Israel (to name only a few), and of course multiple topics regarding Italian cinema. Yet his frequent return to German film clearly signals a lifelong dedication to this country’s cinema, from the silent era to the present. One can trace this interest to his studies at the Freie Universität in Berlin as well as Rome’s La Sapienza University, and his important volumes on Fassbinder, Wenders, Kluge as well as specific thematic focuses testify to a truly impressive breadth and depth of knowledge, with wide-ranging fluency in 20th century culture. It would be wrong however to limit his impact to books and articles, as the programs he curated at the Pesaro Film Festival, of which he was director from 2000 to 2014, as well as at other festivals and film events, have significantly shaped how an informed international public views German cinema. Giovanni was honoured several months ago with a Festschrift, “Un passo avanti”, which makes it more than fitting that we are presenting Giovanni in the same year with the Reinhold Schünzel Award, for devotion to German film heritage.
