European Cinematographer 2017 – Prix Carlo di Palma:

Michail Krichman 
for LOVELESS

 

White_Tab2.png

The cold eye of Michail Krichman guides us through the film’s dark universe, consequently constructing an intense feeling of discomfort. The camera conveys a strong sense of darkness, emptiness and sadness. The choice of what is shown and what stays hidden, gives tremendous weight to every movement of the camera, every carefully constructed frame. Ascetic and well-measured cinematic means evoke an uncanny sense of anxiety, a slight internal tremor.

European Editor 2017:

Robin Campillo 
for BPM (BEATS PER MINUTE)

From the very beginning, Robin Campillo’s editing underlines perfectly the desperate personal urgency of the ACT UP activists and their manifestations. Be it at a pharmaceutical corporation or at a conference, the edit makes the tempo and contributes to the urgency of the film in perfect harmony with framing and story.

European Production Designer 2017:

Josefin Åsberg 
for THE SQUARE

With great artistic sensibility, the production design in THE SQUARE elevates the film by creating a world at the edge to the surreal. In this way the scenography is able to integrate and interact with the story without ever dominating over it. This is the great artistic quality of Josefin Åsberg.

European Costume Designer 2017:

Katarzyna Lewińska 
for SPOOR

The simplicity and clarity of the costumes intensify the images and underline the substantial message of the film. The clash between the human element and the natural environment is reflected in the texture, the colours and the design of the costumes, at the same time contributing to the personality of the characters and giving them life. They form an integral part of the storytelling, along with all the other visual elements, and together they create a powerful viewing experience.

European Hair & Make-up Artist 2017:

Leendert van Nimwegen 
for BRIMSTONE

In BRIMSTONE, Leendert van Nimwegen, with make-up and hair, helps the characters and their development throughout the film, from play- and colourful, to sober and sinister, the good, the bad, the young, the old. It is a perfect combination of hair and make-up to describe characters, so beautifully done, and making them real.

European Composer 2017:

Evgueni & Sacha Galperine 
for LOVELESS

The dark, haunting and brooding music intensifies the experience of watching the film. Beautifully written, with an intelligent use of piano effects, the score works like an extra character added to the unfortunate family. From beginning to end, the music captivates the underlying tensions, the hidden truths and lies, and guides you through the story, without being too overtly present.

European Sound Designer 2017:

Oriol Tarragó 
for A MONSTER CALLS 

The sound design in A MONSTER CALLS is the power of imagination. Sonically, it takes us into a completely new, unknown world, and does exactly what the filmmaker wants the audience to feel when they’re watching something unfold on screen: It creates a sense of eeriness, a sense of mood, a sense of darkness … resulting in a well-crafted collaboration between sound and visuals.
