Cannes 2013 - Ryan Coogler's 'Fruitvale Station' Wins Un Certain Regard Sidebar 'Future Prize'
6
Avenir Prize - Ryan Coogler

The main competition awards won't be announced until tomorrow, but the 2013 Cannes Film Festival handed out sidebar awards today, in the Un Certain Regard section (which highlights what the festival calls "original and different" works in need of international recognition).


Ryan Coogler's Fruitvale Station won the Prix de l'avenir - a "future" award, meaning essentially that Coogler is a talent to watch.

And of course, we'll be watching.

A jury headed by Danish filmmaker Thomas Vinterberg selected winners from an Un Certain Regard section that comprised of 17 films hailing from 15 different countries. 

6 of the works were first films. 

The rest of the international jury included Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi, French actress Ludivine Sagnier, Ilda Santiago (head of the Rio de Janeiro International Film Festival), and Spanish producer/distributor/exhibitor Enrique Gonzalez Macho.

The Bling Ring directed by Sofia Coppola opened the program out of competition.

In a statement from jury president Vinterberg, he expressed his thanks for the opportunity to oversee what he calls "a fine extract of the best movies around": 

“Dear Thierry, dear Gilles Jacob, dear Cannes Film Festival, Thank you for giving us the responsibility of choosing and celebrating films from a very powerful Certain Regard selection 2013. It is a great honor for us, and the selection has been outstanding in many ways. One of the finest achievements in filmmaking is to create unforgettable moments - moments that stay with us - as a collective memory - as a collective mirror of our existence. Clay figures, extreme beauty, violence, homosexual blow jobs, systematic humiliation of the human kind, Léa Seydoux’s legs, great Brando imitations are just some of the unique images that will follow us for a while. This selection was insistingly unsentimental, and still poetic. It was political, highly original, sometimes disturbing, diverse and first of all, very often - unforgettable.I once again thank you Thierry, for sharing such a fine extract of the best movies around, with all of us.” Thomas VINTERBERG
