, the second feature by Keren Ben Rafael, taking home the Grand Jury Prize. The jury, chaired by French thesp Gérard Darmon, and including Belgian filmmakers Géraldine Doignon and Frédéric Fonteyne, French author Hadrien Raccah and Belgian journalist Hadja Labib, underlined the intelligence of the directing and the high quality of the acting in the film, whose simple narrative is expressed in a very modern way. The movie homes in on the gradual disintegration of a couple. Julia and Yuval live in Paris and have just had a child together. When Yuval decides to go back to Israel to renew his visa, the couple structure their days around their Skype calls. But little by little, their relationship starts eroding.

, the feature debut by Tunisian filmmaker Mehdi M Barsaoui, which was also presented in competition, took home no fewer than three trophies: the Youth Jury Award, the Audience Award and the Cineuropa Prize. Propped up by the powerful performances of Sami Bouajila and Najla Ben Abdallah, the movie also follows the story of a couple in the process of being torn apart. Fares and Meriem spend many a happy day with their 11-year-old son, Aziz. During a stay in the south of Tunisia, a tragic event changes the course of their lives, and as a race against time begins, concealed truths begin to resurface.

Lastly, it is worth noting that the Francophone Award was conferred upon the moving debut film by Albania’s Florenc Papas, Open Door [+leggi anche:
