Off Camera IFF 2024

“For breaking social and cultural taboos in a brave way that truly "paves the way" for both the main character and the director herself. The Andrzej Wajda Krakow Film Award Mastercard Off Camera 2024 goes to Lillah Halla for the film POWER ALLEY"
POWER ALLEY by Lillah Halla received the Andrzej Wajda Krakow Film Award, at the Main Dramatic Competition “Making Way” section of OFF CAMERA.

Filmfest DC 2024

LET ME GO by Maxime Rappaz received the Circle Award at the Filmfest DC 2024!
"The film comes across as a wonderful example of cognitive dissonance, artistic interiority, and inner life, all of which adds to the conflicting human circumstances of a mature, female character, and her dilemma of choosing between those she loves and the uncertainty of not knowing what she wants for the rest of her life. Carefully written and directed, meticulously edited, and masterfully acted, the film is unique in its own private dimension, but at the same time is universal. All humans face throughout their lives the difficulty of making choices as part of the process of discovering possibilities for achieving existential balance and finding happiness."

D’A – Barcelona FF 2024

VERA AND THE PLEASURE OF OTHERS received the Critics’ Prize at the D'A Barcelona FF 2024. The jury awarded the prize “for constructing a very fresh intergenerational story, with images that adhere to the genuine gaze of its protagonist.” Congratulations to the film team!
