Studio Tarara: a leap into the wild 90s behind the scenes of a fictional, successful sketch comedy. But it doesn‘t stop with sex, drugs and rock & roll in nostalgic decorations. We are quickly captivated by the main character, the tragic television star Rick Bolsens. Crashed, soon replaced by a successful colleague, he tries to gain recognition and a new love. The secret of the tragic death of an Enseble member hovers over everything. An intense drama with strong characters."

Nataly Kudiabor - Jury Member  2019

"We all love murder mysteries. While the genre has its rules and conventions, we really appreciate it when the creators bring us intriguing new characters, a compelling dilemma and a fresh location. However, no matter how much you stir
or shake the formula, you aren’t going to reinvent it. Unless you are the creators of Studio Tarara, which tosses all those rules and conventions out the door and brings us something so fresh and original that we very quickly come to believe
that this is the way mysteries have always been told - from inside out. The writing and direction is brave and honest; the production design, cinematography, hair, wardrobe, makeup, sound - every creative craft - drops us gently into a time and world that many of us wouldn’t know but, having found, don’t want to leave - and the acting is so superior that we might think these characters were just captured on security cameras. Studio Tarara is great drama, mystery and powerful social commentary. We applaud not just the creators and artists behind the show, but the broadcasters who were brave enough to allow them to produce something really unique."

- Paul Haggis - Jury President (2019)
