THE CINEMA MAN

Germany’s last mobile film projectionist suddenly became a red-carpet star and touched the hearts of millions of cinema enthusiasts with the story of
his life.

This is the story of 74-year-old Helmut Göldner, Germany’s last real cinema hero. For decades he has packed his mobile film projector in a van and shown movies in remote villages that don’t have a cinema. MasterCard surprised him with a priceless moment, when Helmut met his favourite actor and became a star on the red carpet at the Berlinale 2016 International Film Festival. His story touched the hearts of millions on Facebook and YouTube.

IDEA

Helmut Göldner is a one of a kind. He has been in the cinema business for more than 50 years and drives from one village to the next with his van, a vintage projector and a portable screen, recreating that special movie feeling. He has brought the magic of Hollywood to the remotest corners of Germany and knows everything about movies. His tireless engagement and passion went public when Helmut Göldner himself became a star on the red carpet during the Berlinale 2016. MasterCard invited him to the opening night in Berlin, surprised him with a once-in-a-lifetime experience and rewarded him with the MasterCard Award for Culture & Art.

Implementation

The element of surprise is essential to the idea of a MasterCard Priceless Surprise. Helmut thinks he’s been invited to Berlin for something else. Then he is welcomed by his favourite German actor, Gojko Mitic. Mitic acts as his host in Berlin, starting off at a tailor’s and ending the visit on the red carpet at the Berlinale. In contrast to Priceless Surprises involving celebrities, this one is focused on a person like you and me.
