The coco Best Pitch Award goes to the best pitch presentation of a project in development, voted for online by all attending industry participants. The audience chose VACUUM from Ukraine. In director Yelizaveta Smith’s fiction film debut, a daughter reluctantly returns to her hometown after her father has gone missing and reconnects with a past she wanted to leave behind. The project was presented by Smith and producer Aleksandra Kostina from Bosonfilm, who receives a cash prize of €1,500 as well as the Producers Network Award, a free accreditation to the Producers Network at the Marché du Film in Cannes 2021.
