The Winners
Kirill Serebrennikov
Born in Rostov-on-Don in 1969, Kirill Serebrennikov graduated with a degree in Physics. While a student Kirill directed stage plays at a small local theater. Now he is one of the most acclaimed Russian theatrical directors, adored by critics and audiences for his highly unusual and contemporary visual style. Among the over 20 plays he has directed in Moscow and St. Petersburg is "Jeanne D´Arc" with Fanny Ardant. His first theatrical feature film Ragin (2004) was premiered at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival. His TV project Bed scenes (Postelnie szeny) appeared on TNT channel in 2005 and participated in the Visions program of the Toronto Film Festival. The play Playing the Victim was premiered at the Edinburgh Theater Festival.

Ariane Ascaride
Born in Marseille in 1959, Ariane Ascaride is of Italian origin. She began her career working in the theatre with her brother Pierre before starting to land small film roles in the 1970s. She gained international acclaim in 1995 with Marius and Jeannette and Robert Guediguian, for whom she has acted in five films.

Giorgio Colangeli
In a career that spans over 20 years, Giorgio Colangeli has worked with, among others, Calenda, Gassman, Lizzani, Olmi, Camerini and Pugliese. He is known to television audiences for his roles in several extremely successful series of recent years. In cinema, he has appeared in Marco Tullio Giordana¹s Pasolini: un delitto italiano, Daniele Vicari´s L´Orizzonte degli Eventi and, most recently, in Paolo Sorrentino´s The Family Friend, presented at this year´s Cannes Film Festival.

This is England
The Jury Special Award has been delivered by Ettore Scola to Shane Meadows´ This is England, an account on an English teenager growing in the 80´s in a skinhead environment. The roots of the story are autobiographical: Meadows, after a troublesome teenage, taught himself the technique of making films. After some independent short works, his first feature film was the documentary TwentyFourSeven (1997). Later on, he completed his Midlands trilogy with the British cult classic A Room For Romeo Brass (1999) and the Spaghetti Western tribute Once Upon a Time in the Midlands (2002). Dead Man´s Shoes (2004) confirmed his status as one of British film´s most significant voices.
