Awarded films

The festival was postponed from its usual dates in March/April. The FIPRESCI jury saw the international competition. The prize went to La Belle Indifference with the following motivation: “The film tells about the economic insecurity experienced by the new middle class, and it carefully captures the dilemmas of our times with amazing acting and surreal aspects. The film encourages to question white collar people’s life style habits which are in contradiction with their financial breakdown in the neo-liberal era. More than that, common narrative patterns are broken for the development of the characters.”
