emphasised the “touching and balanced portrayal of the complexities and challenges of motherhood, and the foregrounding of the ever-present issues of global inequalities”. Sophia has thus triumphed at the gathering for the second time, after her feature debut, Mila from Mars, shared the top prize with Stanimir Trifonov’s Burning Out in 2004.

In fact, three more awards went to Mother: for Best Cinematography, handed to Krum Rodriguez for his “quiet presence and complicity in creating a moving cinematic image”; for Best Actress, well-deserved by Daria Simeonova, who demonstrated “the ability to recreate an imposing, yet gentle, presence, which affects different perceptions of the audience”; and a Special Mention for the “open hearts and the boundless trust of the children from the Shiroka Luka village in Bulgaria and the ghetto of Kibera in Kenya”.

Another film that reaped plenty of awards was Valeri Yordanov’s sophomore feature, Shakespeare Like a Street Dog [+lire aussi :

, which took home the gongs for Best Directing, owing to the “author’s ability to create a full-blooded world with its own moral laws”; for Best Script, “combining roughness and tenderness”, according to the jury; and for Best Actor, given to the “exceptional acting tandem with a masterfully presented sense of humour, Vladislav Stoimenov and Vasil Iliev”. The film also received the City of Varna Award and the Union of Bulgarian Filmmakers’ Award.

The Special Jury Award went to Ivan Pavlov’s Spring Equinox, with the jurors noting “the outstanding contribution of the screenwriter, who inspired the creative team to elaborate a quiet, beautiful, funny and touching film”, while Antonia Milcheva’s Happy New Year was named Best Short Film for the “delicate development of the theme of loneliness and the search for closeness in the modern world, achieved through sparing direction, the controlled rhythm of the action and convincing acting”.
