The 7th Küstendorf International Film and Music Festival ended last night with the award-giving ceremony. During six days of film, music and utopia, film was once again larger than life. Names such as Janusz Kaminski, Guillermo Arriaga, Paolo Sorrentino and Alexandros Avranas, among others, enjoyed the week watching films and doing workshops, sharing with the audience their professional secrets.

The ceremony started with this keynote speech:

"The Competition Programme has represented films made by young people for whom we believe that they will make it possible to be larger than life in the future…"

After the diplomas were handed in to young directors, the ceremony was followed by a performance by the Svetozar Marković Folk Ensemble from Kragujevac. They performed traditional dances from Glamoč and Šumadija.

Goran Volarević, the president of the jury for the Vilko Filač Award was the one breaking the ice on behalf of his jury "Thank you for your nice movies which we really enjoyed over the past four days. It was not an easy task to decide to whom the Vilko Filač Award should go but Janusz Kaminski and I agreed that there is one movie that stands out using the visual aspects in telling the story: that movie is Arena, and the director of photography is Bartosz Swiniarski"

French actress Bérénice Bejo, the president of the jury comprising also scriptwriters Guillermo Arriaga and Srdjan Koljević, then revealed the names of main awards winners. Explaining the decisions by the jury, Bejo stressed that the general impression by the three members of the jury was diversity of signatures and expressions of authors in making short films. She said that jury members concluded, having carefully reviewed all films, that the auteur film in general had a bright future. The jury decided to award the following filmmakers:

The Bronze Egg Award went to Luka Popadić, for Baits & Hooks.
The Silver Egg Award went to Julia Kolberger for The Easter Crumble.
The Golden Egg Award went to Andrej Kolenčik and Peter Beganyi for The Exhibition.

The winner of the main award, Andrej Kolenčik, thanked the jury for the award on his behalf and on behalf of his co-director Peter Beganyi.

Then, it was Emir Kusturica΄s turn for a short speech, summing up the festival and saying that this year’s Küstendorf linked the past, the present and the future of film through its three programmes. After this, he invited the Serbian minister of culture, Ivan Tasovac, to officially close the festival who finished his speech saying "So, the festival is closed, shut, so to speak, and the only thing which the authorities can tell you now, after these orgies of talent and creativity are over, is that you must now disperse in peace, two by two.
That’s it, folks! It’s all over now."
