Awards for 2015
Best Arab Film
Special Jury Prize
Emrouz: Reza Mirkarimi
This film depicts a world where the masculine prevails but in which a character emerges who, without words and with profound humanism, goes against the norm.
Special Jury Mention
A Queima Roupa: Thereza Jessouroun
A film with a universal theme that explores the sensitive subject of police corruption. The director tackles a difficult topic with audacity and courage. The documentary uses an accusatorial tone while thoroughly examining certain police practices that occur not only in Brazil but throughout Latin America.
Soko nomi nite hikari kagayaku: Mipo Oh
The film shows a world on the periphery, full of marginal yet highly genuine characters charged with romanticism, exploring aspects of the country other than technology and its age-old traditional culture. The film is endowed with such relevant attributes as a solid screenplay and a cinematographic language that convey very clearly the director's intentions.
