15th Kinotavr Open Russian Film Festival

Russia, June 5 - June 15 2004

The jury

Nikolaj Nikitin (Germany), Christian Monggaard (Denmark), Ingvald Bergsagel (Norway), Anjelika Artyukh (Russia)

Awarded films

“The Green Butchers”, the film by Danish director Anders Thomas Jensen, was awarded by our jury the FIPRESCI prize. In its competition (focusing on European cinema), the festival offered other interesting films as well, such as “South of the Clouds” by Swiss director Jean-François Amiguet (not to be confused with a recent Chinese film of the same title). A lot of films showed the attractivity of traveling. Also, Danish cinema had a good entrance. Read the reports of our jurors.
