‘Blind Dates’ Wins Zagreb Film Festival

LONDON — Levan Koguashvili’s “Blind Dates” won the top prize at the Zagreb Film Festival, an international festival showing filmmakers’ first or second films in its competition program.

The Georgian pic won for its “simplicity, originality, reliance on excellent scriptwriting, moving performance by the actors and humanity of all the characters.”

The winner for documentary film was Slovenian road movie “Karpotrotter,” in which its director Matjaz Ivanisin revisits the places once visited by the Yugoslav Black Wave director Karpo Godina.

The recent Venice winner, “A Pigeon Sat on a Branch, Reflecting on Existence” by Swedish director Roy Andersson, closed the festival.
