The Cinefondation Bestows its Awards

The awards for the best films presented on the Cinefondation program are in! The Jury was presided by UK director John Boorman and members French director Bertrand Bonello, Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi, Tunisian director Ferid Boughedir and Portuguese actor Leonor Silveira handed out their prizes this afternoon in the Buñuel theatre to:

First Prize : BÁBA
by Zuzana Kirchnerová-Špidlová
FAMU, Czech Republic

Second Prize:
GOODBYE
by Song Fang
Beijing Film Academy, China

Third Prize (tie) :
DIPLOMA
by Yaelle Kayam
The Sam Spiegel Film & TV School, Israel
And DON’T STEP OUT OF THE HOUSE
by Jo Sung-hee
Korean Academy of Film Arts, Korea

The winning films each receive a financial boost of 15,000 € for the
first prize, 11,250 € for second place and 7,500 € for the third place
films. The Cinefondation Selection presented 17 films from film school
students, this year representing Asia, Latin America, North America and
Europe, from among the 1,400 films submitted.

John Boorman spoke on behalf of the Jury,
“I have to congratulate you all; these are some of the best student
films from all over the world and it’s really very encouraging. We
couldn’t award the animation films because for some reason they did not
sit well with us. I’d like to announce the winners in reverse order.”

Don’t Step Out of the House
“A brilliant film, a most accomplished student film, made all in one
room with this immense tension, absolute grasp of all the elements of a
horror film. The only reservation we had was should we unleash this
character? You’re a brilliant filmmaker, well done!”

Diploma
“We were very impressed by the way that you were able to make very
subtle points about the situation without pressing anything home.”

Goodbye

“We were all very impressed by your film. You managed to achieve the
most delicate of emotions expressed in a minimal way. It’s the work of
a mature director, but you’re so young. Congratulations.”

John Boorman introduced the importance of the first prize, “We
were very conscious that this prize apart from the money has a very
special purpose; it also means that the director’s first film will be
shown in Cannes, so it’s very important and we gave that to:”

Baba
“It seems that future films are in the hands of women…Much about
youth and age, loneliness and alienation in these films and this one
looked at the relationship of a young girl with her grandmother; she’s
both fascinated and disgusted by age. We thought it was so beautifully
done and beautifully staged and acted. Go make another film!”
