The Jury’s thoughts on the film
The jury of the 34th Panorama of European Cinema, consisting of actress Maria Zorba, director Tonis Lykouresis and director Vassilis Mazomenos, congratulates all the directors and actors of the films of the competition program. At a time when the objective conditions, but also the change of the audiovisual landscape, create additional difficulties in the productions, the auteur's cinema not only survives but constantly shows new strengths. The Commission names as Best Greek Film, after a 2-1 voting, the film "Patchwork" by Petros Haralambous, for the perfection of its production and the promotion of a contemporary theme of the Cypriot, and not only, society, with the emergence of a set of exceptional actors.

The Commission also gives a special mention to Petros Sevastikoglou and his film "The Rumble of the World", for its anthropocentric look and the questions it raises about the power of the cinematic medium.

"Ma nuit" (My Night)
by Antoinette Boulat

The Jury’s thoughts on the film

The director's virtue to create the character of a young girl trapped in the sadness of her daily life, due to the tragic loss of her sister, is developing in parallel into a vivid portrait of today’s youth who wants to be recognized as unique, original and different, while troubled by existential and ecological concerns, for a dubious future. The fluid camera between realism and documentary slips from the young faces into an unpredictable harsh reality, while Paris by night is portrayed with the same intimacy of bold and fearless teenagers, between reality, cruelty, patience and solidarity. This film "dances" us to the rhythm of wise answers and smiles, but also to the kindness of strangers, who in the magical moment of a summer night, can be so close to us.

The Jury’s thoughts on the film

“Sisterhood” film, Dima Duma's first feature-length directing effort, is the choice of Athinorama Readers' Jury. Rich, topical, tough but tender at the same time, it captures with a cool look the issue of girls' sexual awakening, and the delicate balances in a society where both teenagers and adults are looking for their place. The story is presented with a characteristic economy of speech and images, and lighting that follows the psychological transitions of the characters, while the editing gives the film a rhythm that turns it into an informal thriller, with social media as a "battlefield". There are some excellent performances by (amateurs) Antoniha Belazelkoska and Mia Giraud, as well as the photography by Naum Doksevski.
