Mother Superior - 7th Brooklyn Horror Film Festival award winners
Mother Superior directed by Marie Alice Wolfszahn

The Brooklyn Horror Film Festival ended its 7th edition with the U.S. Premiere of the new 20th anniversary 2K restoration of Gaspar Noé’s Irreversible: Straight Cut. The horror fantasy thriller Mother Superior was awarded the top honors of Best Feature and Best Director for Marie Alice Wolfszahn in the Main Competition Features program.

On their top honors selection, the jury stated, “Mother Superior is a thoughtfully crafted folk story exploring the völkisch occult with a captivating aesthetic indebted to the gothic tradition and tight editing, each frame carefully considered. It is a strong directorial debut from Austrian writer/director Marie Alice Wolfszahn.”

“I cannot thank you enough for this huge appreciation of my work,” said director Marie Alice Wolfszahn. “This really means a lot to me. I feel very humbled to be recognized among such an incredible selection of films and directors I look up to. This award certainly also goes to my powerhouse team and cast — without their inspiration, passion, sweat, and determination the realization of Mother Superior would not have been possible.”

In the Head Trip Features competition, Sick of Myself directed by Kristoffer Borgli won Best Feature along with Best Performance for Kristine Kujath Thorp. Falcon Lake also won multiple awards including Best Director for Charlotte Le Bon and Best Cinematography for Kristof Brandl.

On their top honors selection, the jury stated, “For its distinctive directorial voice, phenomenal lead performance and foray into offbeat body horror, we’d like to award best film to Kristoffer Borgli’s Sick of Myself.”
