:: THE PRIZEGIVING

Bnl Award for the Best First Film

FREEZE FRAME BEST FIRST FILM
STIDDA CA CURRI BEST SHORT SICILIAN FILM


The Banca Nazionale del Lavoro, on the occasion of the fifth edition of the Taormina BNL FilmFest, awards the € 25,000 prize BNL First Film 2004 to the Irish director John Simpson for the film "FREEZE FRAME". It is a thriller that tells, in an unstructured way, the story of a man suspected of a murder who is very paranoic and goes on filming himself next to a clock in order to have an alibi in case he is accused of another crime. The problems rise when the police calls him and a tape that could prove his innocence mysteriously disappears.
The prize will be invested on the development of a second film.
The € 5,000 prize BNL - The Sicilian Shorts 2004, goes to Piero Messina for the short film "STIDDA CA CURRI". It is based on a short story by Turi Vassallo and tells the story of the shepherd Lillo; his story is told from two different points of view: Lillo's and that of the owner of the flock for whom the shepherd worked.
In this section, the short "REGALO DI COMPLEANNO" by Christian Bisceglia and Fabrizio Ruggirello got a nomination too.
The two films have been choosen by an international jury chaired by the German director Michael Verhoeven and made up by four personalities from both cinema and culture fields: the actress Iris Peynado, the director Paolo Sorrentino, the director of the International Istanbul Festival Mrs Hülia Uçansu, the fashion designer and cinema lover Emanuel Ungaro.
