The Dorfman Best Film Award recognises powerful and outstanding filmmaking. The winner was announced at the Closing Night Gala on Thursday 21 November.
The jury described Dolce Fine Giornata as: "An accomplished and ambitious drama that tackles a broad political question from an unusual angle. It is beautifully written and shot, with an excellent performance from Krystyna Janda, who portrays a complex and nuanced character. It is the work of a confident filmmaker, deftly fusing family melodrama with a powerful political statement."
