"Aqui y Alla" -- the debut film from Spanish director Antonio Mendez Esparza -- has received the Nespresso Grand Prize from the 51st Critics' Week.

The Critics' Week Visionary award went to "Sofia's Last Ambulance," a documentary about Sofia, Bulgaria (which has twelve ambulances and more than two million people). "God's Neighbors," an Israeli theological thriller from Meni Yaesch won Gaul's Society of Authors.

"The Wild Ones," the directorial debut of Alejandro Fadel, received ACID/CCAS support for distribution.

Critics' Week is the oldest parallel section at the Cannes Film Festival. The jury is mostly made up of critics, who were led this year by Bertrand Bonello. Its Visionary section was led by "Tomboy" director Celine Sciamma.
