  • ArteKino International

An award of 6.000 euros is allocated by ArteKino International to one of the selected projects.

The 2021 award is granted to Solitude by Ninna Pálmadóttir, produced by Pegasus Pictures (Iceland) and coproduced by MP Film Production (Croatia).

The jury was composed of Rémi Burah (President of ArteKino Foundation and CEO of Arte France Cinema).

The Jury’s motivation to this grant is the following:
"The ArteKino International Award‘s choice went to the project of a young director, who has expressed her talent in two sensitive and poetic short films. Her first feature echoes harmoniously with the characters of her shorts and her universe with the one of her scriptwriter, a very talented Icelandic director."
