The main prize was awarded by an international jury, which this year included the Council of Sticlea, Clara Schermer, Jakub Hložek, Petr Horák and Vojtěch Janoušek. He chose the Egyptian film Pre-Wedding Celebration by director and screenwriter Morad Mostaf as the winner: “A captivating picture of complicated and chaotic farewell relationships with the eyes of the uninitiated. Conflict helps uncover cracks and cultural differences. The film not only captures events and their protagonists, but also comprehensively and in an invisible way reveals a number of layers of interpersonal ties and social structures. Cinematic observation takes on impressive forms without forcing the image into proven narratives. ” Dostie).
