Bucharest International Film Festival awards

Awards of the 2. Bucharest International Film Festival 2008:
LITTLE MOTH wins International Competition

The awards ceremony was held at Bucharests Cinema Studioa and the winners were presented by actors Steven Berkoff (OCTOPUSSY, A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, BARRY LYNDON) and Pádraic Delaney (THE WIND THAT SHAKES THE BARLEY). The Festival took place from June 28 to July 6, 2008.

International Competition:

“The Jury was astonished that the International Selection comprised only 7 films to reflect the variety of world cinema. The Jury also regrets that no Romanian film was included in the International Selection. The Jury unanimously awards the prize for Best Film (€ 4'000), Best Director (€ 3'000) and Best Debut (€ 1'500) to LITTLE MOTH by Peng Tao (China) and the prize for Best Cinematography (€ 2'000) to HUANG YI of Little Moth by Peng Tao.”
“Helped by two excellent young actors, the film Little Moth describes in a very restraint way the reality of a world wide problem: Adults are abusing of defenseless children to fulfill their material aspirations. The films shows deep respect and compassion for the subject using a very modern way of story-telling without ever resorting to melodrama.”
