EURO-MEDITERRANEAN CINEMA:
THE WEEK OF ALBANIAN CINEMA
The European Cinema Festival of Lecce, chosen by the cinema section in the  Programme PIC Interreg Italy/Albania, will dedicate this year a week to discover or re-discover Albanian cinematography. An historical journey bringing to light a cinematography nearly unknown in the Western countries – because of the objective weakness  of cinematographic industry – rich, complex, able to express great  European personalities.  An invitation to reflect and a study on the examination of the past and the necessities of the present. The Festival will host some of the most important contemporary Albanian directors.

THE AWARDS OF 7th EDITION OF THE
EUROPEAN CINEMA FESTIVAL


On Sunday April 30th the 7th edition of the European Cinema Festival that took place in Lecce, Italy (25th –30th April) has come to a conclusion.

The Jury unanimously expresses the following motivation:

Ø      The Ulivo d’oro Prize,  The Italian. For the delicate poetic sensibility with which the film deals a dramatic topical issue.

Ø      The Best Script Award: Fratricide. For the rigour with which it portrays the ancestral hatred between two ethnic groups forced to live together.

Ø      The Special Jury Award: Lucy. Through an involving atmosphere, it portrays the existence of a young woman confronted with her precocious motherhood.

Ø      The Best Cinematography Award: Live! For displaying a complex subject in its structure, giving the images a voice of great visual presence.

Ø      The Award to a Debut Film: Sandra Kristoff. To a director that, in spite of the few available means, bravely describes the delicate generational conflicts.
