Awards for Final Cut in Venice

For the fifth year, La Biennale di Venezia will give a cash award of € 5,000 to support the best film in post-production. The Jury of La Biennale di Venezia Prize, composed of Edouard Waintrop (Red Sea Film Festival), Beatrice Gulino (Teodora Film) and Manola Novelli (Pluto Film) has awarded the film:

HANGING GARDENS, by Ahmed Yassin Al Daradji (Iraq, Palestine, United Kingdom)
Producer: May Odeh

2021 “We were impressed by the quality of the selection and we were glad to discover societies we were never confronted with. We were struck by the original and genuine way the directors told their stories. After a long and passionate discussion we have chose to award Hanging Gardens. First of all because of the story: a very dramatic subject supported by truly strong and captivating characters. We were really amazed by the courage of the director and of the producer to bring on screen such delicate and difficult topic and how Ahmed Al Daradji managed to drive us to this underworld. The three of us could sincerely relate to the main characters with which we had the necessary empathy to think that Hanging Gardens will be a cruel and beautiful film”.


The Jury of the Supporters of the 9th edition of Final Cut in Venice has decided to give their support to the following films in post-production:
