Felix van Groeningen’s The Damaged Circle Breakdown, Belgium’s entry which has been shortlisted for the very best international-language Oscar, was once awarded the FIPRESCI Prize for highest overseas language movie of the 12 months on the Palm Springs World Movie Pageant, which runs thru Jan. thirteen.
The competition exceeded out its jury prizes as of late at a luncheon at Spencer’s restaurant in Palm Springs.

The competition is screening 191 motion pictures, together with forty six of this yr’s seventy six international-language submissions. Its target audience award winners can be introduced Jan. 12.
“The juries’ selections cover a range of high art and populism,” said the festival’s artistic director Helen du Toit. “It is especially interesting to see how many of their top choices echo the passion of the audiences’ top picks. International cinema is not just alive and well, but positively thriving. It is my greatest hope that U.S. distributors will find ways of bringing these success stories to a wider audience who is clearly eager for fresh voices.”
