Dhumkkudiya – Best Feature, Best Actress Award for "Rinkal Kachhap" (India)
We are Jaaukanigas – Best Documentary, Best Cinematography & Best Background Music Award (Argentina)
Documentary dedicated to the first RAMSAR Site in the Santa Fe province, located in the islands and coasts area of the General Obligado Department. It is one of the areas with the greatest biodiversity in the province, where many species adapted to life in the wetland proliferate, as well as a great source of freshwater that must be protected and cared for. This RAMSAR Site takes its name from one of the three groups that make up the nation of the Abipones that populated the region for about 6000 years. The documentary proposal seeks to discover the natural beauties and riches of the site, as well as its cultural characteristics from the perspective of a diversity of characters.
terroir – Best Women Filmmaker Award (United States)
The French word ‘terroir’ is used across many languages and cultures to describe the soil and climate factors that give wine its character. Metaphorically, we can look at our human upbringing and the resulting character of various world cultures as ‘terroir’. Factually, we all originate from women, but it is the rare culture that respects or honors this truth. Why do we pervert the vessel of life to its own self-denial?
