Hit the road won the Les Cahiers du Cinema Andre Bazin Award
Celluloid Dreams is proud to announce that HIT THE ROAD received the André Bazin prize for Best First Film 2022 awarded by Cahiers Du Cinéma
✨The award followed the warm words from the jury composed of Arnaud Desplechin, Lyna Khoudri, Benjamin Millepied, Céline Bozon, Charlotte Garson, Marcos Uzal and Zoé Lhuillier:
"It's a first film like a dazzle, a light. A first film which already sounds like a confirmation and which has nothing to envy to its elders as it is masterfully crafted and original. It is a film that does not forget to maintain, in us, the belief in cinema. Thank you for this ode to literature, to love, to sensuality, thank you for this invitation to travel, for this plural portrait of a society that deserves to be noticed for its beauty more than ever. Where mockery and jokes are a shell in which hides a torrent of love. Where music frees souls. Where a road trip is a quest deep within oneself: What existed before us? Is it harder to say "goodbye" than to say "I love you"? You offer us with so much subtlety a family photo like the mirror of a country. Sad and happy. Violent and funny. Shaded but bright. So thank you to Panah Panahi for this film which vibrates and shines in our hearts. Congratulations to him for this illustrious entry into the cinema. »
Congratulations to the filmmakers.
The Maiden distinguished at Manheim-Heidelberg Film Festival
Celluloid Dreams is proud to announce that 'The Maiden' Written and directed by Graham Foy (Canada) has recently received :
The Rainer Werner Fassbinder Award.
"To a film whose profound cinematic expression reveals the fragility of friendship".
The FIPRESCI Award
"For its gentle yet powerful performance and the immersive power of its grainy 16-millimetre shots, which sketch a world where realism and urban mysticism intermingle"
The Student Award
"For a film full of sad, quiet beauty that deals with friendship, encounters with death and coming to terms with grief in a sensitive, pure way. A film full of strong symbolism that subtly directs the viewer's gaze. We were particularly engaged by the transition from the initially documentary effect to the later mystical undertone. (...) The director has let the images speak, he has given the things time to speak for themselves !"
Congratulations to the filmmakers !
