by Antoneta Alamat Kusijanović. The jury stated that the story is “told with graceful vigour and with an incredibly detailed mise-en-scène”. The jury was made up of a total of five members: besides director-scriptwriter Radu Jude, it included Czech director Michaela Pavlátová, Luxembourgish producer-director Nicolas Steil, Luxembourgish actress-director Larisa Faber and Belgian co-director of the Brussels International Film Festival Céline Masset. Moreover, they decided on the winner of the Special Jury Prize. This went to Małgorzata Szumowska and Michał Englert's tragicomedy Never Gonna Snow Again [+leggi anche:

by Bogdan George Apetri (Romania), the Press Jury chose Apetri's drama with comical elements as the winner of the Critics’ Prize. The jury was composed of three members: Gabrielle Seil (Revue), Tobias Keßler (Saarbrücker Zeitung) and Teresa Vena (Cineuropa, freelancer). In their statement, they said: “Through a single detail, like someone's taste in music, the film evokes in an unpretentious way a feeling of longing for a so-called better past – and an uncertain future. With precise dialogue, it deals with important topics such as religion and gender roles, and shows that it is in personal relationships where political relevance lies.”

This year, for the first time, the festival put together a special jury of young people who also voted for their favourite film at the gathering. They bestowed the Young Talents Award upon a filmmaker from the new generation – namely, Polish director Dawid Nickel for his coming-of-age story Love Tasting [+leggi anche:
