On November 3, 2011, the twelfth Edi film prize for the best advertising, industrial and corporate films was awarded in the Schiffbauhalle in Zurich. Our film, “Life with GIST” won a Silver Edi in the “Corporate: Internal Communication & Training” section.

The aim of this film was to introduce GIST and the exemplary treatment successes to the public at large. The documentary shows the route from correct diagnosis to treatment and dealing with this cancer, with the aid of case histories. It examines the worldwide networking of patients and physicians, and the collaboration between different medical disciplines and research. The focus of all these endeavors is the patient. Three patients talked about their experiences, their lives and their cancer histories, and provided audiences with room for hope.edi comment
