Awarded films

Jury statement: “Through Vito Contini Brea’s acting and Arturo Castro Godoy’s directing, the film depicts life, friendship, and most importantly, how to pick oneself back up after falling. For its unique framing, original story that pushes the boundaries of what children’s and youth’s movies can be, the FIPRESCI Prize goes to ‘Rinoceronte’ by Arturo Castro Godoy.”
