After Cannes: Grand Prix to Laszlo Nemes, THE WAKHAN FRONT awarded at Critics’ Week and other successes

May 25, 2015

TorinoFilmLab Alumni stood out in practically all sections of the 68th Cannes Film Festival, from the Competition to the Critics’ Week, to Un Certain Regard.
Laszlo Nemes scored Grand Prix and FIPRESCI Prize in Competition. Hungarian director Laszlo Nemes, an Alumnus of Script&Pitch 2012 who will be returning to TFL to develop his second feature at FrameWork 2015, obtained an extraordinary result with his 1st feature SON OF SAUL – the only debut in Competition – winning the Grand Prix and the FIPRESCI Prize.
 
Besides the director, the film has involved several members of the TFL network: Matthieu Taponier (Script&Pitch 2013) collaborated as script consultant and editor of the film, and FrameWork trainer Matyas Erdely was the cinematographer.
 
THE WAKHAN FRONT awarded at the Critics’ Week. We are proud to announce that the feature directorial debut of French Clément Cogitore, THE WAKHAN FRONT, developed at Script&Pitch 2012 and produced by FrameWork 2011 Alumnus Jean-Christophe Reymond for Kazak Productions received the Gan Foundation prize at the 54th Critics’ Week: the prize grants support for the distribution of the film in France.
 
Two TFL Alumnae get prizes in Un Certain Regard. Prestigious acknowledgements also came in Un Certain Regard for two female producers who took part in TFL: FrameWork 2014 Alumna Ankica Juric Tilic produced THE HIGH SUN by Dalibor Matanic, which won the Jury Prize; the Promising Future Prize and the FIPRESCI Prize of the section went to MASAAN by Neeraj Ghaywan, produced by Guneet Monga (FrameWork 2011).
Congratulations to all!
