It’s a wrap for the 23rd edition of the Las Palmas de Gran Canaria International Film Festival, which ran from 19-28 April. On 27 April, the Official Competition Jury, made up of Marina Sanna, Samal Yeslyamova and Sidney Cadot-Sambosi, handed out the festival’s top prize, the Golden Lady Harimaguada, to the Canadian feature Matt and Mara, directed by Kazik Radwanski. The jurors praised “the ability of the director to bring deep, complex and universal relationship issues and situations to the screen” as well as “the direction of the actors” and “the brilliant and relevant script”.

(Hungary/Slovakia), thanks to its “powerful immersion in Hungarian society, the subtle interconnection between the characters, and the complexity of the questions that link politics and freedom”. The same jury awarded the Prize for Best Performance to actress Minh-Châu for her role in Phm Ngọc Lân’s Cu Li Never Cries [+lire aussi :

(Vietnam/Singapore/France/Philippines/Norway). A Special Mention was also granted to Through the Graves the Wind Is Blowing (USA) by Travis Wilkerson.

(Spain), helmed by María Gisèle Royo and Julia de Castro. They “were struck by the uniqueness of its bizarre yet deep leading characters, its freewheeling yet rigorous film language, and its playful but tactful approach to love, queerness, friendship and motherhood”. The picture, they added, “delivers a rare freshness and audacity in terms of its acting performances, cinematography and editing, and embraces the viewer, who embarks on a gentle yet radical journey through the South of Spain and the four corners of the body”. The same jury bestowed a Special Mention upon Anna Llargués’ short Crack of Dawn (Spain).

Next, the Canarias Cinema jury, made up of Maider Fernández Iriarte, Javier García Puerto and Joana Granero Sánchez, gave the Richard Leacock Award for Best Feature Film to Macu Machín’s The Undergrowth [+lire aussi :

(Spain). They billed it as “a great film that portrays three sisters’ intimacy and complicity thanks to the skill of a filmmaker who manages to convey to the audience, with members of her own family, a story with a universal scope”.

Finally, Prasanna Vithanage’s Paradise (Sri Lanka/India) snagged the Audience Award.
