Udine Far East Film Festival‘s audiences and Black Dragon pass holders crown Hong Kong the winner of the 21st edition.
“We live on the other side of the world and we were worried that our film wouldn’t be understood. But the world speaks a single language: the language of love…”
These were the words of excited and radiant young actress Crisel Consunji on the triumph of Hong Kong film “Still Human” at the Far East Film Festival 21, as she shared the stage and the applause of the Teatro Nuovo with director Oliver Chan and monumental protagonist Anthony Wong (already winner of a Golden Mulberry Award for Outstanding Achievement).
The public were in no doubt about the winner, and neither were the Black Dragon pass holders, who gave “Still Human” the Critics Award. In second place came Chinese black comedy “Dying To Survive”, and in third position Korean blockbuster “Extreme Job””.
Finally, the White Mulberry award for First Film went to “Melancholic” by Japanese newcomer Tanaka Seiji, while readers of MYmovies.it opted instead for another Japanese film, Takeuchi Hideki’s “Fly Me To The Saitama”.
FEFF 21 ends with 60,000 attendees, plus over 20,000 visitors to FEFF Events around the city.
So all that’s left to do is make a date in Udine for the Far East Film Festival 22, from the 24 April to the 2 May 2020!
