,,Adoration’’ wins the Young Francophone Jury Award

The film ”Adoration”, directed by Fabrice du Welz, won the Young Francophone Jury Award at the 19th edition of the Transylvania International Film Festival. The award is offered by TV5MONDE, the French Institute in Romania and RFI Romania and consists of receiving the rights to broadcast the film in Romania. 

The jury of the section, Denisa Dragomir, Daria Ichim, Raluca Morozan and Paula Szilagyi watched at this edition six French films from the TIFF program and decided to award "the asymmetrical love story, out of the ordinary, which managed to provoke in each of them on the one hand contradictory emotions, full of intensity, and on the other hand unanswered questions. Impressive was also the way in which the natural setting, which the protagonists go through in their liberating journey towards an uncertain end, acquired semi-fantastic values ​​along the way. ''

Corina Șuteu, former Minister of Culture and president of the FilmETC Association and the film festival Romanian Making Waves from New York, was the mentor of the jury coordinated this year by Raluca Mateiu, representative of the French Institute in Cluj-Napoca.
