'Liza, the Fox-Fairy', 'The Prime of Life' Win CDFF Audience Awards


9 November 2015

For Immediate release


OTTAWA, ON – The credits have rolled and the ballots are in! The audiences of the second annual Cellar Door Film Festival name Liza, the Fox-Fairy (Liza, a rókatündér) and The Prime of Life (La force de l‘âge) as the winners of the Audience Award for Best Feature Film and Best Short Film, respectively. Liza, the Fox-Fairy, directed by Károly Ujj Mészáros, is a dark fantasy/comedy from Hungary, while The Prime of Life is a chilling French thriller from director Quentin Lecocq. Both films represent the range of speculative films at CDFF from around the world.


Liza, the Fox-Fairy was the Opening Night feature presentation at CDFF this year and screened to an enthusiastic audience at Ottawa’s historic Mayfair Theatre. Laughs rippled throughout the theatre during the screening as Liza enchanted the crowd with her foxy tale. The Prime of Life enjoyed its North American premiere at Live! on Elgin where the film shook audiences with its expertly subtle dystopian tale and concise storytelling. CDFF congratulates Liza, the Fox-Fairy and The Prime of Life for being the audience favourites in the festival’s second year.



All screenings at CDFF were generously supported by Major Sponsors The School for Studies in Art and Culture at Carleton University and Used Ottawa, as well as Supporting Sponsors the Alumni Association of Carleton University and The Haunted Walk of Ottawa, and Friend of the Festival Sponsors Stella Luna Gelato Café, The Odds and Sods Shoppe, Escape Manor, Bridgehead, Film Freeway, Can Con, and Ottawa Geek Market.
