Award FIPRESCI SERBIA JURY OF CRITICS in the selection National Class to the film Wait For Me and I Will Not Come by screenwriter and director Miroslav Momcilovic, who with all the attributes needed for a wholesome and quality work, represents the model how a new reanimated Serbian film should be made. With the sincere and straightforward film expression, and a colourful behavioural spectrum of the gallery of characters, brilliantly portrayed by the acting ensemble, it is not hard to recognise how Momcilovic skilfully treats the topic of love, the topic about which we thought everything has already been said.
Award FIPRESCI SERBIA JURY OF CRITICS in the selection Exit Point to the film Kabuli Kid by Barmak Akram. As an unforgettable and striking portrait of Kabul's everyday life, this film depicts the spiritual superiority which surpasses the unimaginable horror of the twenty-five-year war in Afghanistan, which left more than fifty thousand orphans living on the streets, and the film is dedicated to them. It is a compassionate and touching story about indestructible love between a mother and her child, told with plenty of optimism and sophisticated humour.
