Festival’s appreciation :
« INGENIUM is an intense run with elements and twists of a thriller and surprises beyond that. »
This is the incredible directorial debut of director-producer Steffen Hacker.
« Getting exposure and an audience after so many years of work went into one film means the world to me being a first time filmmaker – I´d finally love to see how people react, if the film entertains, gives them the thrill we all love to get in cinema. So thank you for providing us Indie filmmakers that possibility to show our work to the people that love movies beyond mainstream.«
