Un certain regard awards 2012

While we’re still waiting for the results of the Palme d’or to come in, the award-winners for Un Certain Regard 2012 have been announced. 20 films by 26 directors from 17 different countries were in the line-up this year, with four first films.

Actor/director Tim ROTH presided over the jury of Leïla BEKHTI (actress), Sylvie PRAS (head of cinema – Centre Pompidou Paris, artistic director – La Rochelle Festival), Tonie MARSHALL (director, producer) and Luciano MONTEAGUDO (critic – Pagina/12 – Buenos Aires). Speaking at the ceremony, Roth noted that “This was an extraordinarily strong group of films and our deliberations were passionate. The film makers never once failed us! Incredible!”
