Heta Mantscheff

Casting Award Cologne Conference 1998

Since 1997 the International TV festival Cologne (Cologne Conference) has been the scene of awarding a prize for outstanding achievements in the field of casting. It intends to honour the work of casting specialists in Germany in casting movies and series which has not yet received adequate public attention.

This year's award goes to Heta Mantscheff who was in charge of casting popular productions as »Stadtgespräch« (directed by Rainer Kaufmann) and »Schicksalsspiel« (directed by Bernd Schadewald). With her work she has contributed in a particular way to the quality of TV movies.

The casting award goes to Heta Mantscheff primarily because of her work with Heinrich Breloer in the two-parter »Todesspiel«. »Todesspiel« stands for vast public resonance, controversal political debates and impressive performances by its actors – basing especially on Heta Mantscheffs casting work. Moreover, Heta Mantscheff has been working successfully in the international realm, for instance in the German casting for Emir Kusturica's »Underground«. The award winner, who studied German and political science, lives and works in Hamburg. She has worked as a stage actress and theatre director and for four years co-organized the »Low Budget Film Festival« in Hamburg. Since 1992 she has been running her own casting firm.
