MIAMI — German helmer Oskar Roehler’s “No Place to Go” won the first Fipresci international film critics prize to be awarded at the FIU Miami Film Fest, which wrapped March 4.
The portrait of a middle-aged woman writer torn between conflicting ideals and new realities in a changing German society was one of 24 features screened at the 18th annual event, which is heavily weighted toward Spanish-lingo productions.
The Miami fest’s Fipresci jury included Brit Ronald Bergan, Canadian John Harkness, German Thomas Rothschild, Brazilian Daniel Schrenker-Wajnberg and American Dennis West.
Latin jazz docu “Calle 54” from Spanish director Fernando Trueba, took the FedEx Express Audience Award. Fest director Nat Chediak was associate producer of the film.
