Spotlight on: Andi Winter

Andi Winter, who’s that? A phantom? By no means. In the Spotlight on series, the Diagonale highlights distinctive personalities in Austrian filmmaking. With Andi Winter, Spotlight on turns to an integrating figure from the supposed second row, and his multidisciplinary oeuvre. Winter works as projectionist, cutter, color grader, cameraman and assistant, actor, director, and networker in productions of various sizes and orientations. He has thus worked and continues to work for and with major players in the branch, such as Ulrich Seidl, Martin Gschlacht, Johanna Moder, Gerald Kerkletz, Johann Lurf, and many more.

In this sense, Spotlight on is mainly a dialogue-based platform in 2017, which starting from the person of Andi Winter opens in various directions and brings together polyphonic positions. The program reveals that the Austrian film microcosm often revolves around integrative multi-talents such as Andi Winter, who are still little known among the general public. Spotlight on 2017 – a “working class” spotlight. All of the programs will be set in context by more substantial talks with the host Anna-Katharina Laggner, Andi Winter, and film guests.

Andi Winter was born in St. Pölten in 1976. He first worked as a musician, and became involved in the production of music videos and projections for theater. Since 2003 he has been a projectionist at Top Kino, later for the Viennale and Diagonale film festivals. Since 2004 he can be found on film sets as cameraman and assistant, digital imaging technician, actor, etc. Since 2006 he has worked as a freelance colorist in film post-production.

The Diagonale’17 will take place from March 28 to April 2 in Graz. The entire program will be published on March 17. Ticket sales start on March 22.
