Awarded films

The FIPRESCI Award was given to the filmmaker of the best film among all the world premieres in Bright Future (excluding the Tiger Competition), by the jury of the Fédération Internationale de la Presse Cinématographique (FIPRESCI).

The winning film was awarded with the following motivation: “For its deeply mysterious depiction of familial disintegration, its frequently surprising narrative angularity, and its refreshing evocation of a world in which every home is a private chamber of frustrated desire – most especially for women.”
