“Long live music, long live cinema!” was Alexandre Desplat’s (President of the Jury) final cry after awarding Roy Anderson’s A Pigeon Sat on A Branch Reflecting on Existence with the Golden Lion for Best Film. “Ten days and 20 films with intense moments of impassioned debate, but with immense enjoyment […] films whose vision allowed us to understand their philosophical and political side, and those which moved us with their poetic and humanistic angle” Desplat summed.

No One΄s Child by Vuk Rsumovic

The Silver Lion for Best Director went to the renowned director Andrej Konchalovskij for The Postman΄s White Nights

Also widely expected was the Grand Jury Prize for the documentary The Look of Silence by Joshua Oppenheimer. 

There were two Balkan films awarded at this year’s festival. The RaroVideo Audience Award for Best Film at the 29th International Critics’ Week of Venice IFF 2014 went to Vuk Rsumovic for his No One’s Child (Serbia/Croatia, 2013). On the other hand, and to everybody’s surprise, the Special Jury Prize went to Sivas by Kaan Mujdeci (Turkey, Germany, 2014).
