Screen International renewed its partnership with MIA once again this year for the C EU Soon program. The Screen International Award is assigned by the C EU Soon selection committee members: Aranka Matits, founder of Featurette, Jaume Ripoll, co-founder and director of Filmin, and Pape Boye, founder of Black Mic Mac.
The winning project is BLUISH (bläu) by Lilith Kraxner & Milena Czernovsky, produced by Lixi Frank & David Bohun (Panama Film, Austria).
The film is a portrait of a generation that is finding itself embracing both the highs and lows of life. This young directing duo promises to bring to the screen the vibes of gen Z through electrifying images.
The award includes special press coverage dedicated by Screen International to the winning film, either upon its theatrical release or its premiere at international festivals.
