Crawl wins
Europa Cinemas Label

The French film Crawl directed by Hervé Lasgouttes has won the Europa Cinemas Label as Best European film in the Venice Days.
In receiving the Label, Crawl will benefit from promotional support from Europa Cinemas and better exhibition thanks to a financial incentive for network cinemas to include it in their programme schedule.
 
The jury issued the following statement: "Crawl is an impressive debut by Hervé Lasgouttes. He has a strong sense of story and powerfully evokes the atmosphere of working life in Brittany in a tough economic climate. The performances by the two young leads are exceptional. The end of the film is not a happy one, but a sense of hope remains for the characters and the audience."
 
The winning film was decided by a jury of four network exhibitors:
Enrico Nosei (Cinema Metropolis 2.0, Paderno Dugnano, Italy)
Dietmar Zingl (Cinematograph/Leokino, Innsbruck, Austria)
Charles Rubinstein (Rio Cinema, London, United Kingdom)
Ted Chiaradia (Filmtheater't Hoogt,Utrecht,The Netherlands)
