Actress-producer-director Jennifer Blanc Biehn (WRONG COPS, EVERLY, THE VICTIM) and husband Michael Biehn (ALIENS, TERMINATOR, THE VICTIM) were honored the Vienna Film Ball Award for “The Victim” at Austria’s most prestigious film event of the year – the 2014 Film Ball Vienna. The exciting 3-day celebrity-filled event included a press conference, awards ceremony, and the glamorous ball. For more information, please visit http://www.filmballvienna.at/static/ .
“It is such an honor to be recognized by the Vienna Film Ball for the work we’ve done on “The Victim”,” said Jennifer Blanc Biehn. “I love the entire process of filmmaking because it is very personal to me, so it’s both gratifying and humbling to find fans of Blanc Biehn Production films halfway around the world.”
“How can you not love a movie shot in no more than twelve days combining the talents of Michael Biehn, Jennifer Blanc and everybody’s favorite “Scream Queen” Danielle Harris?,” said Vienna Film Ball committee member Heinz Lackner. “’The Victim’ is a movie that keeps you on the edge of your seat for the entire running time; a movie that exploits the beloved sub-genre that is “Grindhouse” to a tee, and a movie with a final plot twist showing M.Night Shyamalan how it’s supposed to be done.”
Lackner added, “’The Victim’ is a movie that keeps you guessing about the identity of the true victim – and even if you’re a “know-it-all movie buff” you’re probably guessing wrong. A movie not shying away from putting violence on screen – but not for the sake of grossing out the viewer, cause every single frame serves either story or the build-up of atmosphere and tension – it is a movie sending shivers down your spine just by thinking of stumbling upon such a gorgeously deranged guy like Michael Biehn’s character in the proverbial middle of the woods.”
“A stroll in the bosom of “mother nature” will never be the same again,” said Lackner. “Watch ‘The Victim’ and see for yourself! Honestly, we could go on and on about the qualities of ‘The Victim’, could easily succumb to an endless rant on how companies like Blanc-Biehn productions outshine Hollywood’s lean, mean, blockbuster-machine … but what for? Stop reading, get up, grab the movie – and let yourself be blown away like we were! When it comes to movies we Austrians have a pretty good taste … watch “The Victim” and turn yourself into a believer! Do it like Martin Richard Kristek: We care for energy – and we care about movies. The good ones …”
In recent years, Vienna Film Ball has awarded stars such as Christoph Waltz, Kevin Spacey, Maximilian Schell, and Christopher Lee. At this year’s event, Jennifer Blanc Biehn and Michael Biehn will be joined by actress Daryl Hannah and actor Val Kilmer as honored guests at the Film Ball.
