A Diploma In the Hand is Worth a Prize Behind the Scenes
The XII International Film Festival “Listapad” took place in Minsk. Authors of the best films were named
Besides the viewers’ jury, the festival films were judged by a professional moviemakers’ jury chaired by the film director Sergey Ursulyak and a cinema press’ jury. The moviemakers decided to share the prize “Best Directing” between two films — “Midwinter Night`s Dream” by Goran Paskalevich and “Sophie Scholl — The Final Days” by the German director Marc Rotemund. The leading lady in this film Julia Jentsch received the prize as the best actress in a leading role. Zbigniew Zapasiewicz was awarded the prize as the best actor in a leading role for his acting in the film “Persona Non Grata” by Krzysztof Zanussi. And Zanussi himself was given the main prize by the cinema press’ jury, but rather for the classic’s attention to “Listapad” than for his film.
