Rookie Zbanic's 'Grbavica' tops AFI fest

13 November 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

As the 11-day film festival drew to a close, the AFI Fest 2006 juries awarded prizes Sunday to a wide range of international contenders. Taking home the international feature competition's narrative grand jury prize was rookie filmmaker Jasmila Zbanic's Grbavica: The Land of My Dreams, Bosnia and Herzegovina's official entry for the 2006 best foreign language Oscar, starring Mirjana Karanovic (When Father Was Away on Business) as a mother dealing with the Third Balkan War. Strand Releasing is distributing the film in the U.S.

The international documentary grand jury prize went to Mark Verkerk's Dutch-French co-production Buddha's Lost Children, about a Thai Buddhist monk who fights for orphans. Verkerk also received a $10,000 grant from Aquafina.

Winning feature audience awards in a tie were Carla Garapedian's rock activist docu Screamers and Lucy Walker's Tibetan climbing docu Blindsight, plus Swiss filmmaker Fredi M. Murer's narrative film Vitus, about a gifted boy who rebels against his doting parents.

Receiving special mention was the Danish feature from Peter Schonau Fog, The Art of Crying, starring Jannik Lorenzen.

The international shorts competition jury awarded the grand jury prize to Disappearing, directed by American Stefanie Berk, who took home a $10,000 camera package from Dalsa Digital Cinema.
