The winners of VFF 2019

Jury Award for Best Feature Film: Cassandro, The Exotico! by Marie Losier.

The Jury Statement: 
An intimate and immersive, passionate and visionary portrait that conveys the sense of an uncommon existence spent between courage and fragility, raises and falls, excesses and diversity. Marie Losier establishes a tangible and sincere bond with Cassandro, known as “the Exotic”. Her warm-hearted observation, however, does not end with its human side. Through a brilliant use of 16 mm, combining images and emotions, reality and staging, body and scars, love, pain and paillettes, she reasons about the purest filmic matter.

Audience Award for Best Feature Film: One Day by Zsófia Szilágyi.

Audience Award for Best Short Films: Happy Birthday by Savio Debernardis.
