Awards for 2011

Bronze Horse

WINNER

Oslo, August 31st: Joachim Trier
Motivation of the jury: In this film we get to know the man who had all possibilities in a fantastic world, but failed to do anything with it. It is an uncomfortably honest character; both to himself and the world around him. Clever dialogue with an underlying tone of humour, breathtaking cinematography and truthful acting makes this film a perfect portrait of the director's generation.

IN-COMPETITION





















Best Directorial Debut

WINNER

Tyrannosaur: Paddy Considine
Motivation of the jury: The fantastic acting performances in this film takes us into a raw and painful reality where rage meets vulnerability and together they try to find calm and reconciliation. The director shows a mature and skilful storytelling which makes us want to see more from him.

Best Screenplay

WINNER

Where Do We Go Now?: Nadine Labaki, Thomas Bidegain, Jihad Hojeily, Rodney Al Haddid
Motivation of the jury: This film succeeds to, in an unsentimental way engage us in the fate of these characters and the consequences of living with differences. The film makes us laugh, cry and in a humorous way ask ourselves "Would war exist if women ruled the world?"

Best Actress

WINNER

Certain People: Yohanna Idha (actress)
Motivation of the jury: For a touching and compelling portrayal of a rampant and somewhat naive woman, who, in the course of one night becomes a target for mockery by a party of hipsters with unfulfilled ambitions and broken dreams. This actress manages to deliver even the most awkward banalities, with a perfect balance of sincerity and comical timing, and thereby never letting her character become a victim.

Best Actor

WINNER

Twilight Portrait: Sergei Borisov
Motivation of the jury: We would like to honour a man who through his performance manage to visualize the darkest rooms of his society. With help from a fantastic director he lifts the realistic acting to a new dimension.

Best Cinematography

WINNER

Best Music

WINNER

Where Do We Go Now?: Khaled Mouzannar
Motivation of the jury: As the film over all the strength in the music is its ability to with a stable hand combine entertainment with content, the easy accessible with the heavy questions and drama with musical.

Best Short Film

WINNER
