Chant d'hiver

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The fifth edition of First Look — the Festival del film Locarno initiative aiming to showcase films in post-production — has presented six Israeli films. Each one was introduced by its producer to various world sales agents and festival programmers attending the Industry Days.

The jury for First Look 2015, comprising Karel Och (Karlovy Vary International Film Festival’s Artistic Director), John Nein (Sundance Film Festival’s Programming Director) and Soue-won Rhee (Busan International Film Festival’s programmer), decided to give these awards:

  • to SAND STORM by Elite Zexer: an award worth 60,000 euros in picture post–production services, sponsored by Rotor Film

 

  • “For its mature, deeply observant storytelling and courageous depiction of the layered struggles of several generations of women”.

 

  • to A QUIET HEART by Eitan Anner: an award worth 5,500 euros in advertising, donated by Le Film Français

 

  • “For its urgency and originality in addressing the complexities and tensions of contemporary Jerusalem”
