Sven Alexander Heinrich Wins Accolade Competition

La Jolla, California, December 2, 2011 - Sven Alexander Heinrich, graduated student from the Centro de Capacitación Cinematográfica, has won a prestigious Award of Excellence from The Accolade Competition. The award was given for Sven Heinrich´s exciting short film, El Amante del Padrino (The Godfather´s Lover), which deals with the fate of a sect leader´s lover. This short film production features exceptional atmospheres and insights into disturbing spiritual contexts.

"I feel very honoured by the brave decision of the judging committee of the Accolade Competition to give The Godfather´s Lover such a recognized prize. My approach when shooting this short film was never commercial but merely oriented and inspired by strong personal concerns. I would love to contribute to a dawning of consciousness regarding our present conditions, which keep maintaining relevant the principal subject treated in Goethe´s Faust and in the biblical Exodus (second book of Moses, 32: the worshipping of the golden calf)."

The Accolade recognizes film, television, videography and new media professionals who demonstrate exceptional achievement in craft and creativity, and those who produce standout entertainment or contribute to profound social change. Entries are judged by highly qualified professionals in the film and television industry. Information about the Accolade and a list of recent winners can be found at

The Accolade helps set the standard for craft and creativity. The judges were pleased with the exceptionally high quality of entries. The goal of The Accolade is to help winners to achieve the recognition they deserve."
