The popular industry programme at Kviff is in its ninth year, and past films shown as Works In Progress include I Am, Lunacy, Katyn, Tricks, Alois Nebel and My Dog Killer, among many others.

This year’s selection included a standout pitch for The Disobedient [pictured], a Serbian coming-of-age road movie about two 24-year-olds from Tilva Ros producers Mina Djukic (who will direct) and Nikola Lezaic.The film is now in post for autumn delivery after wrapping its shoot in September 2012.

Another promising Serbian title, of a very different flavour, was the crowdpleasing dark comedy Monument to Michael Jackson (working title). The film will be ready to launch this autumn and the footage shown got the day’s only laughs out of the industry-heavy crowd. The film is a co-production with Macedonia and Germany.

Melancholia takes Best Film at the European Film Awards

The 24th annual European Film Awards took place in Berlin last night, with Lars von Trier's Melancholia taking home the top honour, Best European Film, along with the Carlo di Palma European Cinematographer Award (Manuel Alberto Claro) and Best Production Design (Jette Lehmann).

However, von Trier lost out on the gong for Best Director to fellow Danish filmmaker Susanne Bier (In a Better World), while Melancholia stars Kirsten Dunst and Charlotte Gainsbourg were also overlooked for Best Actress, with Tilda Swinton receiving the award for her work in Lynne Ramsay's hard-hitting drama We Need to Talk About Kevin. Further British success came in the form of Colin Firth, who added the Best European Actor gong to his impressive collection of accolades for The King's Speech, which of course includes Best Actor at the 83rd Academy Awards back in February of this year, while Stephen Frears was the recipient

Raindance Film Festival 2011: 'Tilva Ros'

  • CineVue
★★★★★ Tilva Ros (2010) is easily the finest film of this year's Raindance Film Festival and outside of that favourable context, still one of the most satisfying dramas in a year that has brought us Nicolas Winding Refn's Drive and Tomas Alfredson's Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. Nikola Lezaic's debut feature is a marvel, without being on any tangible level particularly original or radical - this is a film that knows exactly what it wants to be and confidently succeeds on every count.
