MOSCOW

Chilean director Dominga Sotomayor Castillo’s “From Thursday Till Sunday,” a disturbing story of a family breakup seen through the eyes of two children, took top prize at Poland’s 12th T-Mobile New Horizons Film Festival, which wrapped Sunday.

The Wroclaw-based fest, Poland’s largest international movie showcase, focuses on arthouse fare by debut and sophomore directors.

Castillo’s film, a Chile-Netherlands co-production, wins $25,000 and guaranteed distribution in Poland.

Brazil’s “Neighboring Sounds,” directed by Kleber Mendonca Filho, won the critics’ Fipresci award, and “Punk Syndrome,” by Finnish directors Jukki Karkkainena and Jani-Petteri Passi, took the Films on Art Intl. competition prize.

Fest screened 469 films from 52 countries during its 11-day run, including 160 films making their Polish premieres. Screenings, including documentaries, shorts and retrospectives, were seen by 108,000 spectators.
