The world cinema has lost a great voice.

Bakhtiyar Khudojnazarov

* 29. 5. 1965 in Dushanbe † 21. 4. 2015 in Berlin

We mourn the loss of a dear friend and devoted fellow, a "pioneer" of the NIPKOW PROGRAMM, whose participation in the very first session of the programme back in 1992 - with which he brought his characteristic unconventional ideas, fantastic visions and fiery determination - not only helped to make NIPKOW become what it is today but also lent world cinema one of its unique voices.We will never forget his insights, his humour, his generosity of spirit, his kindness and his endlessly fascinating anecdotes loaded with both the fanciful and the commonplace.He has left an indelible mark on the NIPKOW PROGRAMM…


Kjeld Veirup

We will always cherish the memory of our dear colleague Kjeld Veirup who passed away on 31st August 2013.

He was a highly respected, generous and beloved teacher and mentor who moved and motivated many over the years. With his passion and commitment, he knew how to encourage others to trust themselves to hear their inner voice.

We miss him greatly, but he will continue to inspire us.
