The fantastic fable 'Jupiter's Moon' wins Sitges 2017

The Special Jury Award goes to the Norwegian supernatural drama 'Thelma'; and French director Coralie Fargeat wins best direction with her debut feature film 'Revenge'

The 50th Sitges 2017 - International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia comes to an end today with a list of award winners rewarding European film. The Hungarian Kornél Mundruczó –author of the extraordinary White God–, a director who has always intelligently introduced the fantastic element in his movies, walked away with the award for Best Feature Length Film for Jupiter’s Moon, a fantastic fable that boasts a stunning production design. Jupiter’s Moon also picked up the award for best visual effects. The award for best direction went to French director Coralie Fargeat who, with a violent movie containing certain nods to 1970s classics, shot a dazzling debut film: Revenge. The list of award winners At Sitges 2017 illustrates a Festival that has obtained record-breaking numbers, with a 10% increase in ticket sales

Jupiter’s Moon dazzled audiences and its, director Kornél Mundruczó –author of the extraordinary White God– brought complicity to Sitges and demanded social awareness for one of the great dramas of our times: immigration. Mundruczó will be collecting the Award for Best Feature Length Film in the Official Selection at Sitges 2017’s special closing gala, to be held this evening at La Fragata to commemorate the Festival’s 50th anniversary. The gala features La Fura dels Baus and is produced by La Xarxa per a la Comunicació Local

The list of awards at Sitges 2017 acknowledges the roles of Marsha Timothy in Marlina the Murderer in Four Acts and Rafe Spall in The Ritual. The Catalan filmmakers Pintó & Caye also received the award for best short film with R.I.P and the Audience Appreciation Award for Matar a Dios. The José Luis Guarner Critics’ Award was ex aequo for two movies that arrived with the guarantee of the awards chalked up at the Austin and Locarno Festivals, the Brazilian As boas maneiras; and the award for best screenplay at the Cannes Festival, the film by Greek director Yorgo Lantinos The Killing of a Sacred Deer.
