The European Independent Film Festival Wraps and announces its Awards

The European Independent Film Festival (ÉCU), Europe's premier event for independent cinema, announces the festival's award winners.
ÉCU 2010, in partnership with G-Technology by Hitachi, screened 72 films from 28 countries over the weekend of the 12th, 13th and 14th of March 2010 at Cinéma Le Grand Action and Le Triomphe Théâtre in Paris.
Twenty-three awards were given out at the ceremony. Winners include Mihal Brezis and Oded Binnun from Lost Paradise(France) for "Best Director," Ventura Durall's Las 2 Vidas de Andrés Rabadán(Spain) for "Best European Dramatic Feature", and Marco Gadge's Das Paket(Germany) for "Best European Dramatic Short". The prestigious title of "Europe's Best Independent Film 2010" went to Yonathan Levy for Das Kind(UK).
Since its inception five years ago, ÉCU has proved to be a discovery point for many of Europe's talented independent filmmakers who are driven by the passion to make great cinema, but don't benefit from large production budgets.
