IWC Schaffhausen took on responsibilities as a co-partner of the Zurich Film Festival for the second time this year. The Swiss luxury watch manufacturer set the stage for a very special highlight during the festival: under the heading “IWC Schaffhausen Talks To”, selected guests of the Zurich Summit had a chance to listen to in-depth conversations with two world stars of cinema, Marc Forster and Christoph Waltz.


Biography

Born in Germany and raised in Switzerland, Marc Forster headed for New York in 1990, where he attended the New York University Tisch School of the Arts. Five years later, he made a low-budget movie called “Loungers”, which won the Slamdance Audience Award. He finally made his Hollywood breakthrough in 2011 with “Monster’s Ball”. His semi-fictitious “Finding Neverland” was nominated for five Golden Globes and seven Oscars. He also directed the James Bond film “Quantum of Solace”.
