“Lourdes” wins Best Film at Seville Festival

The film "Lourdes" (supported by Eurimages) by the Austrian director Jessica Hausner, has won the Gold Giraldillo for Best Film at the Seville Festival which closed tonight. The Jury emphasized the sensation of uncertainty given by Jessica Hausner’s film and its ability to capture the audience’s attention. The Eurimages Award, with a cash prize of 30,000 euros, has gone to "Tears of April" (FIN, DE, GR), directed by Aku Louhimies. The film, set during the Finnish civil war in 1918, tells the story of a man and a woman on opposite sides whose lives cross, lighting the spark of a tense love amidst the horrors of the conflict.
