The screenplay for Glavonić's film, which world-premiered in the Cannes Directors' Fortnight, was partly developed through Zagreb's My First Script educational platform. The prize, worth €4,000, was given out by the jury comprising directors Juho Kuosmanen and Maja Miloš, and actress Deborah Kara Unger, who also decided to hand a Special Mention to Phuttiphong Aroonpheng's Manta Ray [+lire aussi :

Joachim Lafosse's Keep Going [+lire aussi :
