ECUMENICAL PRIZE AT CANNES AWARDED TO MIA MADRE


The Ecumenical Prize at Cannes is decided upon each year by the Ecumenical Jury, a collection of Christian filmmakers, upholding a historic tradition at Cannes of honouring a film of supreme social, moral or religious conscience. This year, two of their three selections were taken from the main competition, with an Un Certain Regard title also in the mix. Their choices can be seen below:

Ecumenical Prize
Mia Madre (Nanni Moretti)

Special Mention
The Measure of a Man (Stephane Brize)
Taklub (Brillante Mendoza)
