2022 Awards, Jury and Selection

Most Promising Project

receiving a 3000 euro monetary prize presented by Elisa

Screenwriters: Guilherme Branquinho, Leone Niel, Gabriela Giffoni
Producer: Frederico Serra
Country: Portugal

Jury comment: "Finisterra is marked by an extraordinary depth of research and at the same time tremendous emotional impact. This visually strong and artistically challenging series, set in a small Portuguese town during World War II, tells a universal, yet poetic story about the oppression of women, the abuse of power and, last but not least, addresses the question of which stories influence our lives and our society.”

Hypewriter Award

Cosmic Girl
Screenwriters: Daniela De Francesco, Adama Grevoz
Producer: Claudio Esposito
Co-producer: Patrice Nezan
Countries: Italy, France

Jury comment: "Amongst many great projects presented, there was one that immediately caught my attention - Cosmic Girl. A story that at its roots deals with our future existence, our failure and our fight to survive. Climate change already is a subject of many conversations and Cosmic Girl presents a great, fresh twist in the perception of it" - Boris Bezić, the director and creative producer of Paprika.
