Regarding Alice nella Città, the parallel and independent section of the festival dedicated to new generations of filmmakers and which saw a 26% increase in ticket sales, the jury handed out the Best Film Award to French film The Dazzled by Sarah Suco, “for its ability to tell a raw and engaging story, attentive to the details of a tragic reality, and intelligently capturing at the same time the comic nuances of an imprisoned life.” The award for Best Director, meanwhile, went to Lorenzo Mattotti for The Bears' Famous Invasion of Sicily [+lire aussi :
