Korean director Kim Dae-Seung's first feature film Bungee Jumping Of Their Own has won the Filmfest Hamburg's 'Golden tesafilm Reel' audience award against competition from 10 other first-time filmmakers.

Filmfest director Josef Wutz announced that more than 25,000 admissions were registered for the 148 screenings of the 81 films in the festival programme.

Meanwhile, the Hamburg subtitling company 'SUBS' 'Golden Letter' newcomer award went to the short Strandgut by Antonia Jerrentrup.

The itinerant prize, which includes a full subtitling package for the winning film, was geared at this year's Filmfest in Hamburg to bring the sidebar of short films more into the spotlight.
