in Spain to widespread acclaim. As for the festival itself, the Principado de Asturias Prize for Best Feature Film in the official section went to Hotel by the River, directed by South Korean maestro Hong Sang-soo — a worthy winner, according to the jury, “for demonstrating once again the extraordinary and prolific creativity of one of the great contemporary filmmakers, who continues to prove that the most substantial of subjects can be tackled with neither artifice nor solemnity. This film is (another) example of Hong in a state of grace.” Hotel by the River, was also honoured for its screenplay, written by the director himself (a prize-winner at Gijón three years ago — read more here), and its lead, Ki Joobong who was presented with the prize for best actor.

Best Cinematography went to Too Late to Die Young in its second award of the evening. Directed by Inti Briones, it was generally regarded as the best film shown in the competitive sections. Meanwhile, the Gil Parrondo Award for Best Art Director was presented to Iuliana Vilsan for his work on “I Do Not Care if We Go Down in History as Barbarians”.
