The Venice Film Festival’s independently run Critics’ Week awarded its prize to Italo helmer Guido Lombardi’s “La-Bas. A Criminal Education,” a gritty drama about illegal immigrants near Naples.

The Europa Cinemas Label awarded in Venice complements the Labels awarded at the Directors’ Fortnight in Cannes, Panorama in Berlin and at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival.
