The team of the winning film
The award ceremony was held under the disgruntled cries of critics and journalists. However, dissatisfied with the results of the festival occur every year. As said woody Allen, whose film “high life” opened the festival: “I do not participate in the contest, because I don’t believe in competition in art. The jury will give prizes to the paintings which many viewers deem boring. And someone will find my movie boring. You can’t decide who is better, just say who you like more, and that’s fine.
