TWO AWARDS FOR MITEVSKI SISTERS IN LECCE
The film “I Am from Titov Veles” has been awarded two awards at the Film Festival dedicated to the European Film in Lecce, Italy. The Special Award by the jury went to the director, Teona Mitevska, and the award for the best actor to her sister Labina Mitevska for her role of Afrodita.
Ten extraordinary European films competed in the main competition including Cannes and Venice favourites such as “Magnus” or Russian “Punishment” by Andrei Zvjagintsev. The ninth Lecce Film Festival was the focus of Italian media because of the visit of Russian Oscar-winning Nikita Mihalkov.
