Serbian "Clip" Winner of LIFFe Film Festival



"The film is characterised by deep understanding of a certain kind of reality of life from which the maker draws inspiration for her powerful and sovereign film expression," the jury said. MiloŇ° herself says that the film is actually a story about love among young people.

MiloŇ°'s debut is a daring, rebellious portrait of Serbian youth, who do their best to drown social issues and apathy in sex, drugs, music and a labyrinth of communication technology. Despite the festival's end, the wining film will again be screened on Monday.

FIPRESCI award, given out by a jury of the International Federation of Film Critics, went to "Sister" by French director Ursula Meier. The film tells as touching story about growing up, which shatters the myth that Switzerland is the land of milk and honey.

Meier tells the story of 12-year-old Simon, who lives in a dilapidating industrial town near a skiing resort with his mother, who forces him to act like he is her brother in public.

"An excellently played and directed drama about the two sides of Europe and how they collide, it has one of the most memorable endings in the recent history of film," the jury said.

The people's choice award went to German and Austrian co-production "Lore" by Cate Shortland. The film is about a group of abandoned German children, who embark on foot 900km to the north of the country after the end of WWII in 1945.

Best short film award went to "Tuba Atlantic" by Norwegian Hallvar Hitzo for "the funniest depiction of hatred against birds after Hitchcock and the most clumsy angel after Clarence Odbody".
