The deliberation of the Best Film Award of the Muestra de Cine will be open to the public
The Jury of the Lanzarote Muestra de Cine will decide the Best Film Award of its eighth edition. It will do so in a special way: through deliberation open to the public, which will allow witnessing the argumentation and reasoning process that the Jury will take to make its decision. With this initiative, the Exhibition aims to extend the process of reflection and sharing that has marked its eighth edition. In this way, anyone who wants it can be aware of how and why the Jury has reached its final conclusions.
It will be tonight at 11:00 pm at CIC El Almacén, the main venue of the Exhibition, after the screening of the last Official Competition film: M by Yolande Zauberman. People who want to attend, may do so freely and free. It will only be necessary to follow two basic rules to safeguard the distance that such a delicate process requires: the session can not be recorded and the attendance of directors or people directly related to the production of films in competition will not be allowed.
“The philosophy of the Exhibition is to recover cinema as a collective and reflective experience,” says Javier Fuentes, director of the event. “For us, the ideas that are generated after the screenings are as important as the films themselves because, thanks to the comments, impressions and suggestions of others, our vision of these works is completed and enriched.”
The three members of the Jury of the eighth edition of the Lanzarote Film Festival are: Vanesa Fernández Guerra, director of ZINEBI, International Documentary Film and Short Film Festival of Bilbao; Francesco Clerici, filmmaker who won the International Critics Award (FIPRESCI) for The Hand Gesture; and Alejandro Krawietz, director of the MiradasDoc International Festival and Documentary Film Market, Tenerife.
The six films that choose the Prize of the Jury endowed with € 2,500 are: La casa lobo, by Cristóbal León and Joaquín Coñiza; Star, by Johann Lurf; The image that you were missing, by Donal Foreman; Continues to record, by Saeed Al Batal and Ghiath Ayoub; Trote, by Xacio Baño; and M. de Yolande Zauberman.
