The prize is awarded in around ten festivals in Europe including festivals in Berlin, Cannes, Venice. It is given to a film having indisputable artistic qualities and consists of promotion on the Cineuropa site, including a special section dedicated to the film, which will appear on the home page, Mitevski production company said in a press release.
Three-member jury told that the prize is awarded to the film When the Day Had No Name which depicts the complex social problems of a young generation living on the margins of society, rejected by dysfunctional or lost families. The story tells the multi-layered society in transition, where nationalism and chauvinism are imposed as new values.
Film maker gives voice to new generations with great mastery which are stuck between oldfashioned values and western influences. Director takes us through spontaneous dialogues through the atmosphere of an ordinary provincial day that ends unexpectedly, jury said. Mitevski production company informs that film When the Day Had No Name will participate at the Crossing Europe Film Festival Linz, which will be held from April 20-25 in Austria.
