Montreal 2011

The Ecumenical Jury at the 2011 World Film Festival Montreal awarded its Prize to Davi (still, right), directed by Joel Fendelman (USA). The citation read, “David, a Muslim child living in Brooklyn, New York, finds himself in a Jewish School. Through the story, we are transported with finesse and sensitivity to the heart of a social problem: the coexistence between religious and cultural communities.”
Hasta la Vista, directed by Geoffrey Enthoven (Belgium), described by the Montreal Gazette as “not your average coming-of-age comedy”, received a Commendation. The film also won the Grand Prix des Amériques and the Public Award for most popular film. The Jury notes, “Three young friends, each with a different disability, organize a dream trip. Through daily difficulties and sometimes comical happenings, the director offers a new perspective on the challenges and limitations of their situations and of the open-mindedness of their families and immediate circle.”
