Saulius Macaitis prize 2016

The Critics’ Choice programme, already in its fifth year, brings festivalgoers works selected by famous film critics. 12 cinema experts, 8 of whom are members of FIPRESCI, chose 12 films out of 52 suggested candidates. One of the films in this programme – Chilean director Patricio Guzmán’s “The Pearl Button” – was awarded the special Saulius Macaitis prize, named after the legendary Lithuanian film critic.
