CPH:DOX/ Reel Talent Award to Elvira Lind

Last night the first award at the closing ceremony of CPH:DOX was given to Elvira Lind. This is a copy paste from the press release of the festival, photo stolen from the FB page of producer Sara Stockmann. I was a member of the jury and on stage for the motivation together with director Klaus Kjeldsen:

The Association of Danish Film Directors and CPH:DOX hand out the Reel Talent Award to a documentary director, who has shown an exceptional cinematic vision at an early stage.

Jury statement: “On behalf of Danish Directors and CPH:DOX it is my pleasure to announce the winner of the Real Talent Award of 25.000 Dkr.

The director who is to receive this recognition has a short but impressive filmography that gives hope for future work. She – yes, it is a she – has demonstrated that she is able to get close, to deal with sensitive matters in a gentle and respectful way, to build a story so it comes out as an engaging drama that is much stronger than many feature films. I guess that many of you watched her film at CPH:DOX last year. She is in the process of making a new film that was presented recently on the Nordisk Panorama where it was very well presented and received. Also that film will have an international career. Let me give you the titles - the finished film is “Songs for Alexis”, the one coming up is “Bobby Jene”. So ladies and gentlemen, the winner, a true documentary talent – Elvira Lind. “

The jury consisted of Tue Steen Müller, freelance journalist for; Fredrik Gertten, Swedish filmmaker and journalist; Klaus Kjeldsen, film director; Mette-Ann Schepelern: cand.phil, Danish director and creative producer; and Tine Fischer, festival director at CPH:DOX.
