CineMart Honors 3 Projects

The International Film Festival Rotterdam‘s CineMart closed last night in The Netherlands, awarding the Prince Claus Film Fund Grant and two Arte France Cinema Awards. The grant of 15,000 Euro was presented to the CineMart ’07 project “Independencia” by Raya Martin (Cinematografica Independiente en Filipinas, Philippines). In the words of a description, “Set against the backdrop of the American occupation of the Philippines in the early 20th century, the project concerns a small family that has taken refuge in the woods in search of a quiet life. The story depicts their daily struggle for survival while simultaneously engaging with the more universal struggles for identity, freedom and humanity.” Recipients of the 10,000 Euro Arte France Cinema awards are “A Rational Solution” by Jorgen Bergmark (Hepp Film, Sweden) and “Les pieds nus sur les limaces” by Fabienne Berthaud (Agat Films & Cie, France).
