His directorial debut with "Fruitvale Station" is the strongest most promising debut since Spike Lee broke on the scene in 1986 with "She's Gotta Have It." The skill and execution it took to make "Fruitvale Station" a critical smash and Box Office success can be scene in every frame of Coogler's powerful masterpiece.

Motivation of the jury: "This film presents a captivating slice-of-life, or maybe rather a slice-of-death, portrayal of the taking of someone's life. The abhorrent, meaningless murder is captured sensitively and sincerely in this energetic film. It's both a brutal eye-opener and a masterful cinematic achievement. A harsh reminder of the impact slavery has left on our contemporary society. This impressive debut is a must for everyone to see!"
