Dragon Award Best Nordic Film
The Norwegian film Before Snowfall (Før snøen faller), directed by Hisham Zaman won this year’s Dragon Award Best Nordic Film. The prize sum is one million Swedish Kronor. The prize is presented in partnership with the Ernström Group. Other financiers include the County Council for Västra Götaland and the City of Gothenburg.

The jury’s motivation: 
“The Dragon Award for Best Nordic Film goes to a film with an original and honest vision that goes beyond clichés. By using an exceptional cast and a precise and vivid style of cinematography the director succeeds in telling a story that reveals the impact of tradition and culture and the fact that they can be conquered by naive, true love. The winner is Before Snowfall.”

Jury: This year the jury was presided over by the Iranian filmmaker Samira Makhmalbaf. Other jury members: Manuel Alberto Claro, Christin Berg, Thor Sigurjonsson, Andrea Östlund and Timo Malmi

The Ingmar Bergman International Debut Award
The Chilean film Dog Flesh (Carne de perro), directed by Fernando Guzzoni, was awarded with the The Ingmar Bergman International Debut Award. The prize is a one-week stay at Bergman Week, a DVD box with 22 Bergman films as well as a beautiful stone from Ingmar Bergman’s beach at Fårö, engraved with his name.

The jury’s motivation:
”A man cannot cope with the deeds of his past and experiences an intense daily suffering. An exceptional performance constitutes the chore in a multilayered tale of redemption, executed with complete artistic control.”

Jury: Jannike Åhlund, Maxine Williamson andVolker Schlöndorff
