(World sales: Funny Balloons)

The jury was composed by the participants to the program 28 Times Cinema of the European Parliament.
Here the motivation of the jury:
With limited conditions of time and space the film-maker succeeds to deliver an emotional and complex take on dealing with the secrets of the past.

The registration of the final meeting of the jury, which was livestreamed, is available on the Venice Days website (below).
 
The award consists of an expressly-designed trophy handed to the filmmaker and a cash prize of €20,000, to be split equally between the filmmaker and the film's international distributor, who agrees to use the sum received to promote the winning film internationally.

The award ceremony will take place today at the Villa degli Autori at 7.30 p.m. and it will also host the delivery of the FEDEORA prize and the Europa Cinema Label and it will be closed by the announcement of the BNL People's Choice Award.
