International SinCity Film Award

In 2011 interfilm Berlin called upon filmmakers from all over the globe to make a film or music video for the song SinCity by newcomer chanteuse Schmidt.

Of all submissions 85 films from 27 countries were presented on our partner platform.

30 entries were selected for competition, competing for seven awards totalling 20000 Euro.


London and Berlin-based artist SCHMIDT was discovered by music producer Guy Chambers. He and Schmidt coproduced her debut album Above Sin City, released in March 2012. 

During the final voting rounds of the International SinCity Film Awards, Warner Music released a sneak-preview EP of five songs taken from the album. Schmidt is currently on tour with her band.-Jury:
