Bezar’s ‘Children’ wins Febio

Turkish/German pic is repped by Match Factory

PRAGUE — Prague’s Febiofest honored Miraz Bezar’s “Children of Diyarbakir,” a Turkish/German co-production, with its main prize Friday. Distribbed by Match Factory, the story of two struggling Kurdish girls capped the nine-day event.

Pic typified the diversity that has filled the halls of Czech capital’s CineStar multiplex this year, with more than 200 art and world films unspooling. Fest’s fan base, built solidly for 17 years, knows that, apart from a scaled down tour of six cities starting next week, they will not likely get a chance to see most Febio films again.

Guests such as Terence Davies and Belgian-American duo Peter Brosens and Jessica Hope Woodworth engaged crowds with tales of shoots and production struggles, while auds also took in high-res digital screenings of such pics as “Desert Flower” and experienced the avant-garde work of artist helmers such as Gaspar Noe.

Febiofest Music Fest, which coincides with the film fest, set a characteristic progressive mood to the event, founded by Slovak documentarian Fero Fenic.
