‘Washington’ wins Hubert Bals award

Georgian pic scoops $8,000 prize

BRUSSELS — Georgian feature project “Washington” has won the Hubert Bals Fund Award at the Yerevan film festival co-production forum in Armenia.

Helmers Andro Sakvarelidze and Giga Chkheidze carry off Euros 5,000 ($8,000) from the fund, part of the International Film Festival Rotterdam.

“Washington” sees the world through the eyes of a 10-year old boy from Georgia, whose fantasies, inspired by the image on a dollar bill, show that money brings identical troubles the world over.

Project was selected from 12 in the second DAB Co-Production Forum, which brings together professionals from across the Caucasus and neighboring countries.
