Awards were given at the Gala last night in Malmö at the Nordisk Panorama. Here is the motivation from the jury for the Best Nordic Documentary Award:
”For its complexity, attentiveness to details, ability to tell the story in artful and concise way and unprecedented access to the events, we would like to give Best Nordic Documentary Award to Democrats. A film that manages to approach a unique moment in the history of Zimbabwe in an honest, straight-forward approach creating a compelling, suspenseful drama…”
Yes, the winner was ”Democrats” by Camilla Nielsson, who competed with 13 other films.
Absolutely no objections from filmkommentaren.dk
The same goes for the Audience Award that went to ”The Look of Silence” by Joshuan Oppenheimer.
Remains to be seen is ”Marta & Niki” by Tora Mårtens, who received an honorary mention in the Best Documentary section.
Three more films were awarded in the short film and ”New Voices” category – check the link below.
