EDITORIAL Dear IMZ members,
IMZ is going new ways to open new perspectives. We are happy to invite you to join us for the next Avant Première Screenings in Berlin from 12 to 16 February 2014! Moving the Avant Première Screenings from Cannes to Berlin has challenged us to make an impactful decision, to which we have paid attention to the full extent. During various board meetings, as well as the last General Assembly on 27 January 2013, all the arguments for and against have been discussed. It became clear that an overwhelming majority was in favour of the Berlin option. Bringing the decision to MIDEM’s attention at a meeting in Cannes, followed by a second meeting at the MIDEM headquarters in Paris, finally lead to a new proposal to the IMZ. While the new offer moved some way towards a financially better deal for the IMZ, it left the fundamental questions surrounding the partnership unanswered. Considering the developments in broadcasting and the music and media industry as a whole, the IMZ sees a strong responsibility to create an improved framework for our activities. The main concern at the General Assembly was whether a continued partnership with MIDEM would offer sufficient space to do so. Our target is a more promising environment for the IMZ enabling new markets, new networks, new partners and new members. We are convinced that Berlin is just the right place. In the context of Berlin as a centre for the film industry the location holds possibilities for new audiences as well as cooperation arrangements. Coinciding with the Berlin Film Festival/Berlinale the Avant Première Screenings take place at a time of increased attention to film productions. We move to Berlin with a wide spread network of new partners following our mission to explore new markets and partnerships for the future of Avant Première. Our screening site will be Hotel Scandic at the heart of Berlin at Potsdamer Platz. Providing convenience for all our activities planned it features • an auditorium with a state of the art video and audio equipment for the screenings • saloons for panel discussions and presentations • space for stands • bar and lounges for networking • hotel rooms at a special rate Have a look at Hotel Scandic Potsdamer Platz, Gabriele-Tergit-Promenade 19, 10963 Berlin at Scandichotels.com/berlin. A block reservation for the IMZ membership has been made. Further information will follow as the IMZ office continues to organise the next Avant Première 2014. All of us are more than willing to put our energy towards this move to Berlin but we depend on your support to make this step throughout successful. So save the date and encourage your colleagues to join us! We are grateful for your help and may also call on some of you to assist us. We are looking forward to set objectives for the IMZ to confidently face the new developments and challenges of music in the media. Should you have any questions, please contact the IMZ office, or the board members you are assigned to.
Very best wishes,
Arild Erikstad President of the IMZ

Special guest was the pianist Vladimir Ovchinnikov, who was recently invited to perform for her Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth and to whom President Vladimir Putin has awarded the highest state distinction in music, People's Artist of Russia.

Two ROMY TV Award Nominations For Karajan – The Second Life:
Award Winning John Cage – Journeys In Sound Honored Again: The documentary John Cage – Journeys in Sound by Allan Miller and Paul Smaczny has won the award for Best Educational Film at the 31st Festival International du Film sur l'Art (FIFA) in Montréal, Canada.
The documentary Karajan - The second Life by Eric Schulz is nominated in two categories of the prestigious Austrian ROMY TV Award: in the category Best TV documentary 2012 and in the category Best producer TV.
EuroArts A Diapason d'Or Award went to Bruno Monsaingeon's Richter, L'Insoumis – the Enigma
The film Karajan – The Second Life offers never-before-seen film footage and a fascinating look at the musical performances of the conductor Herbert von Karajan. Excerpts from private recordings of phone calls between the maestro and his sound engineer Günter Hermanns were exclusively analyzed for this film and provide an authentic insight into Karajan's work. The central question is: what will remain of Karajan, who made more recordings than anyone else, and his unprecedented ambitious artistic legacy. Karajan – The second Life is a production of ServusTV in coproduction with Unitel Classica The ROMY TV award in honor of the actress Romy Schneider was created in 1990 by the Austrian newspaper Kurier. This year’s award giving ceremony is taking place in Vienna on 18 April. www.servustv.com

Catalan and Spanish dancers/choreographers Carme Martí and Elisa del Pozo team up once more with director Loránd János for Lynching, a danced homage to David Lynch’s red room. Lynching is a movement based intergenerational dialogue between two women: a mature and a young one, denouncing the fatality of the human being. Between young and old, time and space, light and shadow, birth and death, there is a constant metamorphosis of life. The director’s intention was to bring together two generations of strong dancers/choreographers, on one hand the young, restless energy of Elisa del Pozo, and on the other hand the mature professionalism of Carme Martí. This is director Loránd János´second common project with Elisa del Pozo, after creating EGO in 2011, where horror and dance genres where merged, and the third common project with Carme Martí (after TaBaLet, 2010 and Sueños (Dreams), 2012). Lynching, currently in postproduction, is an international co-production (with the participation of the Catalan Centre Cívic Barceloneta) and is produced by Ramón Oriola, David Canelo and Arnau Mas for Lorán Ipsum Films.
