The postponed Febiofest Prague 2020 (see the news) has announced the winners of its 27th edition. The Main Competition jury, comprising Czech filmmakers Beata Parkanová and Slávek Horák, and Czech actress Anna Polívková, stated: “Each of the films made an impact on us, affecting different parts of our personalities. That’s why we also decided to hand out a Special Mention. And it was precisely that award that represented the toughest choice, as it was hard to decide between these well-matched films. In the end, it went to Maria Sødahl’s Hope [+lee también:

by Slovakian director-producer Ivan Ostrochovský, which premiered at this year’s Berlinale. “An extremely powerful story told by purely cinematic means, a genuine celebration of film language that at the same time delivers a clear message comprehensible to viewers. All elements of this film are of the highest standards in terms of filmmaking, combining to create a highly compelling, brave and original whole,” said the jury of its unanimous decision to pick Ostrochovský’s film, following young seminarians as they face pressure from the secret police during the early 1980s in Czechoslovakia, when the clergy, grouped together in the association Pacem in Terris, collaborated with the communist regime. “I have to admit that I never expected an award,” noted Ostrochovský. “More than anything, I’m happy that my film was screened at a festival and that viewers had a chance to see it before it enters cinemas. The fact that Servants also won has made me very happy indeed!”
