New Voices/New Visions Grand Jury Prize

A Brand New Life: Ounie Lecomte

Best Actor

WINNER

Gagma napiri: Tedo Bekhauri
Diminuitive non-professional star Tedo Bekhauri gives a quietly galvanizing portrayal of a 12-year-old refugee tossed to the winds by the Georgian-Abkhazia war.

Best Actress

WINNER

I Killed My Mother: Anne Dorval
For her nuanced performance as a bruised and bruising matriarch mired in love/hate land with her teenage son.

Best Foreign Language Film

WINNER

Involuntary: Ruben Östlund
Involuntary investigates the subject of group think and individual responsibility through an interwoven series of fraught social situations. Ostlund, who also wrote the screenplay, deploys a diabolically askew camera lens throughout, deliberately obscuring our vision in ways that mine maximal tension from each of his mini-dramas and implicate the audience in the disruptive behavior of his characters.
