In "The Hunt", Lucas, an inherently good man becomes the target of a community torn apart by lies, manipulation and betrayal ; where he continually fights for his lost friendship's, forgiveness and reputation. Thomas Vinterberg's direction gives us a strong statement: showing us a new way of looking at modern society where men and children are concerned; things are not always what they seem!

Acclaimed Danish film director Thomas Vinterberg is the winner of the 2013 European Union Prix MEDIA. The prize is awarded to the best new film project with box-office potential eligible for support from the EU MEDIA programme for cinema. The award will be presented to Vinterberg by Androulla Vassiliou, European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth, at the Cannes Film Festival on Sunday, 19 May - the director's 44th birthday. Vinterberg shares the award with co-writer Tobias Lindholm and his producers Sisse Graum and Morten Kaufmann for their new film project Kollektivet (The Commune), which tells the story of life in a Danish commune in the 1970s.
