Frankfurt and the Oscars

Frankfurt and the Oscars

The annual Academy Awards is one of the most watched events on the international entertainment calendar. Each year, the most talented actors, directors, producers and filmmakers from around the world gather in Los Angeles to celebrate their work and craft. But did you know that Frankfurt am Main also has a connection to the Oscars?

The Oscars traditionally take place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, but preparations often begin weeks and months in advance in many parts of the world. Frankfurt is one of the places where some of the most important preparations for the Oscars take place. This is because Frankfurt is an important hub for the film industry in Europe.

Frankfurt is home to a number of companies that are of great importance for the Oscars. These include, for example, Arri and Panavision, both of which manufacture state-of-the-art film and camera equipment. These companies work closely with filmmakers and producers to ensure they have the best possible equipment for their work.

In addition, Frankfurt is also home to companies such as Pictorion das Werk and Pixomondo GmbH. These companies are known for their high-quality special effects and animation and have won several Oscars for their work in the past. They play an important role in the preparation of the Oscars, helping to create trailers, commercials and other visual elements for the event.

Frankfurt as a city also has a connection to the Oscars:

With "Im Westen nichts Neues" the German production could win 4 Oscars at the Oscars. Frankfurt's Adrian Grünewald plays a young soldier in the war drama who goes to the front in 1917 full of euphoria, but is quickly caught up with reality.

Furthermore, the German film "Das Leben der Anderen", which won the Best Foreign Language Film award at the 2007 Oscars, was partly shot in Frankfurt. Award-winning director Tom Tykwer, who was nominated for his film "Lola rennt" at the 1999 Oscars, is also from Frankfurt.

Overall, the Oscars is a global event that brings together people from different parts of the world. While the actual event takes place in Hollywood, companies and individuals from many different countries play an important role in the preparation and execution of the event. Frankfurt, as an important hub of the film industry in Europe, has definitely earned its place in this list.
