Saturday 26 October saw the closing ceremony of the 64th Valladolid International Film Festival - Seminci. This year, the spotlight was on Öndög, a co-production between Mongolia and China written and directed by Wang Quan’an (Tuya’s Marriage) and the worthy winner of this year’s Golden Spike, the festival’s highest honour. The film also took the prize for Best Director of Photography, which went to Aymerick Pilarski. Shown in competition at the Berlinale and fêted by the jury at the recent Film Fest Ghent (read more here), it is set to be released in Spain in 2020 under the auspices of Caramel Films.
