"The Only One" and "Sons" Take Mannheim-Heidelberg Fest Prizes

Belgian director Geoffrey Enthoven‘s “The Only One” (Vidange perdue) won the “Main Award of Mannheim-Heidelberg” at the 55th International Filmfestival Mannheim-Heidelberg (November 16-25) in Germany. The fest’s “Rainer Werner Fassbinder Prize” went to Norwegian Erik Richter Strand for “Sons” (Sonner), while special jury awards went to “Stealth” (Comme des voleurs) by Lionel Baier (Switzerland) and “Thicker Than Water” (Blodboend) by Arni Olafur Asgeirsson (Iceland). Danish director Peter Schonau Fog‘s “The Art of Crying” (Kunsten at graede i kor) won the festival’s audience prize, while “A Summer Day” (Un jour d’ete) by Franck Guerin (France) took the FIPRESCI award. 60,000 visitors attended screenings, and this year’s Mannheim Meetings, a co-production market that runs concurrently with the event, included 63 projects from 39 countries.
