The 30th CineMart, co-production market of International Film Festival Rotterdam concluded yesterday, Wednesday 30 January in Rotterdam, with the announcement of the three awards for best CineMart Projects 2013.

Jätten (The Giant) by Johannes Nyholm (Denmark/Sweden) wins the Eurimages Co-Production Development Award; the ARTE International Prize goes to The Lobster by Yorgos Lanthimos (Ireland/UK/Greece) and the WorldView New Genres Fund Development Award goes to Zama by Lucrecia Martel (Argentina/Spain).


The Jury for the CineMart Awards consisted of Olivier Père (ARTE France Cinéma), Petri Kemppinen (Finnish Film Foundation / Eurimages representative), Annamaria Lodato (ARTE France), Himesh Kar (WorldView) and Amy Richardson (Worldview).


The winners and the Jury statements are:


Eurimages Co-Production Development Award 

The Eurimages Co-Production Development Award (30,000 Euro) for the Best CineMart 2013 Project with a European partner is given to Jätten (The Giant) by Johannes Nyholm, a co-production of BeoFilm Productions (Denmark) and Garagefilm International (Sweden).

‘A project of a talented filmmaker who is about to make a leap from widely appreciated short films to his first fiction that will a tender melodrama.’

Johannes Nyholm (1974, Sweden) is an artist and film director based in Gothenburg. The animated film series The Tale of Little Puppetboy (2006) was originally shown at, and made for, gallery screenings. But it has also been shown widely at festivals around the world. The music video Twice, for Little Dragon, was the origin for the short film Dreams from the Woods (2009), which premiered in Cannes. Even before being completed, his latest short, Las Palmas (2011), gained a global reputation through a trailer more successful than any Hollywood blockbuster. The Giant will be Nyholm’s first feature film.


ARTE International Prize

The ARTE International Prize (7,000 Euro) for the Best CineMart 2013 Project is given to The Lobster by Yorgos Lanthimos, a production of Element Pictures (Ireland/United Kingdom/Greece).

‘A very exciting and original project from one of the most talented emerging filmmakers of the last decade.’

Yorgos Lanthimos (1973, Greece) filmed a series of videos for dance theatre companies throughout the 1990's. Since 1995, he has directed a number of TV commercials, in addition to music videos, short films and stage plays. His first feature film, Kinetta (2005), screened to critical acclaim at the 2005 Toronto International Film Festival. His second feature, Dogtooth (2009), won the Un Certain Regard award at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival. Alps (2011), his latest film, premiered in competition at the Venice Film Festival, where it won the Osella Award for best screenplay.


WorldView New Genres Fund Development Award

The WorldView New Genres Fund Development Award (5,000 Euro) for the Best CineMart 2013 Project is given to Zama by Lucrecia Martel, a co-production of Lita Stantic Producciones (Argentina) and El Deseo (Spain).

‘A visually stunning and uniquely approached period project by one of South America’s most influential director.’

Lucrecia Martel (1966, Argentina) made several short films, a children's television programme and documentaries. Her first full-length film, La ciénaga (2001), won the Alfred Bauer Prize at the 2001 Berlinale; La niña santa (2004), her second feature, was nominated for the Palme d’Or at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival. Martel’s latest feature is La mujer sin cabeza (2008), which premiered in Competition at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival. All Martel’s features have been selected for the International Film Festival Rotterdam.


CineMart was the first platform of its kind to offer filmmakers the opportunity to launch their ideas to the international film industry and to find the right connections to get their projects additionally financed. CineMart also heralds an important start of the 'film year'.
Every year, the CineMart invites a select number of directors/producers to present their film projects to co-producers, funds, sales agents, distributors, TV stations and other potential financiers. 

For its 30th edition, CineMart selected thirty-four projects. The selection included four ‘Art:Film’ projects and four projects from this year’s Boost! program.
