The prestigious 14th Austrian Film Awards took place this year at Vienna City Hall on June 5, 2024. Hosted by actress Emily Cox and comedian Dirk Stermann, this year’s trophies were handed out to recent festival circuit favorites. Celebrating the magic and the narrative diversity of cinema, the awards show theme this year was “more than film.”

THE DEVIL’S BATH from Veronika Franz and Severin Fiala stood out among the award winners this year garnering eight awards. The film made an impressive splash when it debuted in competition at 2024 Berlinale, and won a Silver Bear for the camera work of Martin Gschlacht. 

In addition to winning Best Feature Film, THE DEVIL’S BATH came out on top in eight categories including Best Leading Actress (Anja F Plaschg), Best Supporting Actress (Maria HofstΓ€tter), Best Cinematography again (Martin Gschlacht), Best Film Editing (Michael Palm), Best Score (Anja F Plaschg as her artistic alias Soap&Skin), Best Production Design (Andreas Donhauser and Renate Martin) and Best Make-up (Judith KrΓΆher Falch and TΓΌnde Kiss-Benke).

Releasing on Shudder on June 28 and having its US Premiere at the Tribeca Festival on Saturday, June 8, the film’s official synopsis reads, “In 1750 Austria, a deeply religious woman named Agnes has just married her beloved, but her mind and heart soon grow heavy as her life becomes a long list of chores and expectations. Day after day, she is increasingly trapped in a murky and lonely path leading to evil thoughts, until the possibility of committing a shocking act of violence seems like the only way out of her inner prison. Giving a voice to the invisible and unheard women of the rural past; THE DEVIL’S BATH is based on historical court records about a shocking, hitherto unexplored chapter of European history.”
