One World 2010 winning films have now been announced

The award-winning films of the 12th edition of the One World Film Festival have been announced. The awards will be presented to the filmmakers during the closing ceremony on Thursday evening at the Lucerna Cinema.

The films in the main competition competed for the Best Film Award and Best Director Award chosen by the Grand Jury. This year the Best Film Award goes to the film Enemies of the People. The Czech Minister of Culture will award the prize to the film’s director Rob Lemkin.


The Best Director Award goes to the documentary Chemo by Polish director Pawel Łoziński.

The Rudolf Vrba Award is given to the best film in the Right to Know category. The Jury that decides on this award this year is deliberately made up not of filmmakers but of charismatic, brave individuals working in the field of human rights. The Rudolf Vrba Award goes to the film The Sun Behind the Clouds.
The award will be accepted by the film’s two directors Ritu Sarin and Tenzing Sonam and by the executive producer of the film Francesca von Habsburg-Lothringen.


The Rudolf Vrba Jury awards Special Mention to the film Tibet in Song.


The documentary The Sun Behind the Clouds will also receive the Václav Havel Special Award as a film that uniquely contributes to the defence of human rights, awarded by the Jury whose honorary chair is Václav Havel.

The Czech Radio Award for creative use of music and sound in a documentary film will be awarded to the Czech film directed by Tomáš Kudrna All That Glitters.

The Student Jury Award for the best film in the One World collection of films for students will be awarded by the Student Jury to the director Marije Meerman for her film I Wanna Be Boss.

The winner of the VŠEM Audience Award is the Czech documentary The Unwelcome by Tomáš Škrdlant.
