2020 Eurimages Lab Project Awards

The first Eurimages Lab Project Award of the year went to the project Atlantide directed by Yuri Ancarani and produced by Marco Alessi (IT). This film was presented in the framework of the on-line edition of the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival Eastern Promises Industry Days. The jury composed of Mark Peranson (Head of Programming of the Berlinale), Adina Pintilie (Romanian filmmaker) and Els Hendrix for Eurimages (Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and Media – BKM- in Germany) decided to reward this film for the unsettling yet fascinating vision of a dying world it brings. It stated: “Using the metaphor of Atlantis, the director’s singular gaze brilliantly synchronises the perspective of teenagers with the sad perspective of a vanishing city. Nevertheless, like contemporary Noah’s arks, the motorboats race across the Venetian lagoon, driven by the energy of youth, in a life-affirming view on a possible future.” The next Eurimages Lab Project Award will be presented during the online special edition of New Nordic Films 2020 in Haugesund.
