THE AWARD GOES TO
Belladona By Maxime Pistorio
Jury was composed by Bernardo Bergeret (AR), Luciano Sovena (I), Julian Richards (UK), François Stassens (BE), Anouchka Walewyk (BE), Véronique Jadin (BE) and Eve Commenge (BE) and choose the project because it is an original and female driven subject, which explores with delicacy, humor and subtlety an age in someone’s life that is too little represented in cinema. The pitch found a compelling entry point to make a dark comedy about a couple’s life.
