DECISION OF THE INTERNATIONAL JURY


 
The International Jury of the 17th European Film Festival Palić held at Palić, Subotica, Serbia 17th – 23rd July 2010 was composed of:  
Mr. Hans Christian Leitich, film critic, Austria - President of the Jury
Ms Jaana Puskala, Finnish Film Foundation (Head of Feature Film Promotion), Finland - member
Mr. Eran Kolirin, Director, Isrćl - member
Ms Iva Krajnc, Actress, Slovenia - member
Mr. Vladimir Paskaljević, Director and Screenwriter, Serbia - member
 

Upon viewing the Official Competition Selection of 12 films, the International Jury made the following DECISION: 

GOLDEN TOWER FOR THE BEST FILM – HOW I ENDED THE END OF THE SUMMER, Aleksei Popogrebsky

Expanding the concept of a psycho thriller, a maximum of effects with a minimum of means is achieved by superb use of sound design, naturalistic as well as symbolic images and directing the actors. This is used for a message, which underlines the necessity to communicate in an alienated world, between people, between generations, between old and new schools of thinking.  

PALIĆ TOWER FOR THE BEST DIRECTOR – THE ROBBER, Benjamin Heisenberg 

For extracting a beautiful thesis about compulsiveness as a mean for salvation and the everlasting struggle for freedom - in the disguise of a genre film. By displaying a variety of narrative rhythms, the film manages to move between naturalism in daily routines and the pace of the protagonist's soul. 

SPECIAL MENTION – GORDOS, Daniel Sánchez Arévalo

For celebrating the lust for life and making us hungry and horny in times of crisis. Funny films are important, and they are easily overlooked - so we were pleased to give a special mention to a colorful play on the tragicomic subject of body weight.

Tolerance Award


For its way of building moral suspense in a slice of life narrative, for its outstanding, mostly non-professional actors performance and for its promotion of values without judging or moralizing, in a superior and refined way, the Tolerance Award goes to STREET DAYS by Levan Koguashvili

Special Mention

For its deconstruction of narrative in a spectacular cinematic way, for its contagious sense of absurdistic humor, for its irresistible images, Special Mention of the Critics’ Jury goes to THE TEMPTATION OF ST. TONY by Veiko Õunpuu

ROUND TABLE: THE FUTURE OF THE EUROPEAN FILM FESTIVAL PALIĆ

The question regarding the future of the European Film Festival Palić was raised at the round table discussion yesterday at the JP Park Palić, when Dinko Tucaković, the host, asked the participants of the discussion when the cinema theatres in Subotica and Serbia died out, letting film festivals take their place. How should one balance between its royal highness - the Film, which has to stay at the very focus of the Festival, unavoidable accompanying programmes and festival atmosphere, which is necessary but not a goal itself, asked Tucaković.

THE DIRECTOR AT THE ONLY STRICTLY EUROPEAN FILM FESTIVAL IN THE WORLD

NO BUSINESS LIKE MONKEY BUSINESS This past week I spent five days in Palic, Serbia, at the only strictly European film festival in the world, now in its 16th year. I premiered my latest film, Boudica Bites Back, starring my wife Lisi, pictured below, at a giant outdoor screening. Ninety-four films are screened over an official seven days, with 19 extra days showing pre and post-festival films for the festival hardcores who can’t bear to go home. The musician Mick Harvey, co-founder with Nick Cave of the Bad Seeds, was also there.
