ARSCTENICO sends heartfelt congratulations to Christian Goldbeck (Member VSK) and Ernestine Hipper for winning the Oscar 2023 for their work “All quiet on the Western Front”. A wonderful success! 

 And, of course, we congratulate the entire team behind such highly successful work. Their great commitment makes it possible to realize a vision of outstanding quality in all facets and details!

In his acceptance speech, Christian emphasized the great importance of cooperation between all trades. In “All quiet on the Western Front” this is very obvious in the detailed and finely tuned costume design by Lisy Christl, the disturbingly realistic make-up design by Heike Merker and the dense and dynamic camera work by James Friend, who also received an award. These 4 film artists* and their teams have created stunning images!

In addition to the Best Achievement Production Design award, the film also won the categories 

Best International Feature Film
Best Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures (Original Score)
Best Achievement in Cinematography

After “The Tin Drum”, “Nowhere in Africa” and “The Lives of Others”, “All quiet on the Western Front” is the fourth German film in the history of the Oscars to receive the award for Best International Film and the first to win a total of four Academy Awards.
