    VDFK Honorary Award for Ron Holloway

    By Martin Blaney | December 9, 2009

    The Honorary Award of the German Film Critics’ Association (VDFK) goes this year to the film journalist, film historian and documentary filmmaker Ron Holloway. Hailing from Chicago, he came to Europe four decades ago and began working as a critic for such trade papers as Variety, The Hollywood Reporter and Moving Pictures.

    The VDFK honours in particular his tireless commitment for the international circulation of German and East European cinema.

    “The New German Cinema of the 70s owes its worldwide success considerably to the journalistic support from Ron Holloway,” VDFK spokesman Hanns-Georg Rodek said.

    For the past 30 years, he has been publishing the magazine KINO – German Film with his wife Dorothea Moritz. He is a holder of the Order of the Federal Republic of Germany (Bundesverdienstkreuz).

    The honouring of Ron Holloway took place on Wednesday, 9 December 2009, during the Christmas Industry Get-Together of Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg in Berlin.
