Interview with director Bernhard Wenger (EXIT RIGHT)

Bernard Wenger co-directed (with Rupert Höller) the multiple award winning short film “Exit Right.” “Exit Right” was the winning of BEST FILM at the November 2015 FEEDBACK Film Festival.

Watch the Audience FEEDBACK for EXIT RIGHT:

I recently sat down with Bernard and chatted with him about his short film and what’s next for him. 

Matthew Toffolo: What motivated you to make this film?

Bernard: We wanted to show people how important that topic is. We wanted to create awareness of racism in our every days life!

Matthew: From the idea to the finished product, how long did it take for you to make this film?

Bernard: We worked more than one year on this project!

Matthew: How would you describe your short film in two words!?

Bernard: not possible

Matthew: What was the biggest obstacle you faced in completing this film?

Bernard: Shooting in a driving bus was really complicated!

Matthew: What were your initial reactions when watching the Toronto audience talking about your film in the feedback video?

Bernard: We were happy that the people gave such a good feedback!

Matthew: This was the second film that we showcased of yours at our festival. Both different, but also very similiar as they end with a comedic twist to the conflict at hand. Is that going to be your “thing” (love it if it is)?

Bernard: Yes it kind of is!

Matthew: What film have you seen the most in your life?

Bernard: I don’t know. Maybe it is “Shame” by Steve McQueen.

Matthew: What is next for you? A new film?

Bernard: Yes! I shot a new short in September, which is currently in post production! It will be out next year!
