CinéDOC Tbilisi Winners

Some days ago the award ceremony for the CinéDOC-Tbilisi took place. The young festival that by many, including me, is characterised as a ”warm festival”, with a high quality selection.

And no need to say that the winner in the international competition has high quality: ”Brothers” by Wojciech Staron, Polish master cinematographer and director. I do not keep track of the many Grand Prix this film has won, but I remember my happiness when it got first award at DOK Leipzig last year. And encouraging that the student jury also chose ”Brothers” (photo) as their favourite.

… and bravo that the audience brought ”Transit in Havana” by Daniel Abma to be winner of the maybe most important award you can get, that of the audience.

You can read about all the winners on the festival site below but I smile when mentioning that Armenian ”One, Two Three” by Arman Yeritsian, produced and promoted by Yulia Grigoryants got the first prize in the Caucasus section for their warm film about old people, who stay very much alive and kicking through dance and singing.

I met this film years ago when it had the working title "The Chosen Ones" and know how difficult is was to have not the usual 3 main characters but many more. Apparently they succeeded to find the rythm.

CECILIA BY Pankaj Johar. I dare to say - even I am EP- of it: it´s a very rare film on exploitation, poerty, what ever, because it really questions: what would we do if...
