“Crossing Boundaries” by Florian Flicker wins ART CINEMA AWARD at Sarajevo Film Festival 2012
The CICAE is glad to announce that the ART CINEMA AWARD at THE SARAJEVO FILM FESTIVAL 2012 has been given to: “CROSSING BOUNDARIES” (Austria 2012, 90 min) by FLORIAN FLICKER
Synopsis: A woman – two men: her husband wants her to flirt with the other man to distract him from finding out about the couples activities as people smugglers. The other man wants to flirt with the woman to get some evidence about the illegal things they do. They fall in love – the woman, being manipulated by both men, finally chooses the only possible way out…Love is a warm gun.
The verdict of the jury: We chose the film that we think combined everything into a perfect orchestra: the screenplay, the cinematography, the acting and of course the directing. The film’s topic is universal and it deals with the human nature of always finding and pushing one’s limits. We believe that this film will find great audiences in the CICAE member cinemas and festivals all across Europe and all over the world.
