Ladies and gentlemen … The winner of the Grand Prix this year’s Febiofest is.. a Swedish-Icelandic film Home (Hemma)! Its director Maximilian Hult will receive the Grand Prix at the Closing Ceremony today (28th of March 2014) along with € 5,000 as a reward. Another € 5,000 will be given to promote the distribution of the film.
The prize will be handed to the Director by the honorary chairman of this year’s jury, Oscar-winning costume designer, Mr. Theodor Pištěk.
The jury praised the deeply human story, great acting and humor of the film. Among the views of jury evaluation, appeared these comments:
“Superbly rendered the characters that are very different and yet the director then connects them as a cure for loneliness.”
“Precise and metered work with conventions. The romantic comedy, which was sensitive and funny as the main heroine.”
“Great civilian performances and quirky humor.”
“Living film with an emphasis on the love between people and understanding the differences between people.”
