Still Recording scoops two awards in Venice's International Film Critics’ Week
- VENICE 2018: Blonde Animals by Alexia Walther and Maxime Matray also wins a prize
The International Film Critics' Week – an independent and parallel section organised by the Sindacato Nazionale Critici Cinematografici Italiani (SNCCI) – awarded prizes at its 33rd edition at the 75th Venice Film Festival (29 August – 8 September)
General Delegate Giona A. Nazzaro commented on this year’s edition: “A selection that carries future desire, the pleasure of diversity and the search for new perspectives in its DNA. A selection that, at a time when politics is closing its doors, strives to open all the windows, in true Rossellini style, inviting us to ponder the contradictions of our times and strive towards cinema that chooses not to appease.”
