EU-supported film was awarded at the San Sebastian Film Festival

The winners of the 69th edition of the San Sebastian International Film Festival were announced on Saturday 25 September, with a film funded by the EU being awarded.  Noche de Fuego/Prayers for the Stolen by Tatiana Huezo took home the Horizontes award. In total four EU-supported films were competing within the Official Selection of the Festival. The EU supported these highly international works, involving several countries both within the EU and beyond, in their development, international coproduction and distribution through the MEDIA strand of the Creative Europe programme. These and many other productions also feature within the context of the 30 years of MEDIA campaign, which celebrates the EU’s continued support to the audiovisual industry throughout the decades, highlighting the work of the industry in front and behind the camera, and the true impact of EU support. The Festival, in association with Creative Europe MEDIA, also hosted a livestreamed edition of the European Film Forum: ‘The transformation of the European audiovisual ecosystem: towards a more sustainable and digital industry’.
