Best International Feature Film

WINNER

Suntan: Argyris Papadimitropoulos
"While there were many outstanding films in the international competition, Suntan is the title that really resonated with us. Argyris Papadimitropolous's film is a compelling and unflinching portrait of one man's journey from infatuation to desperation, marked out by a truly great performance from its lead actor, Makis Papadimitriou."

IN-COMPETITION











Best Documentary Feature Film

WINNER

Shadow World: Johan Grimonprez
"The jury felt there was an exceptionally high quality of films presented in the documentary section this year but, for us, the clear winner was Shadow World. Quite simply, it is an extraordinary film. A particularly powerful, poignant and provocative documentary, this film asked critical questions that continue to resonate. Director Johan Grimonprez and writer Andrew Feinstein pose the essential question: will we be allowed to choose peace over the business of war?"
