Sponsored by German post-production studio D-Facto Motion, the D-Facto Motion WIP Award of €35,000 in-kind services plus €5,000 for additional expenses went to the work in progress STAND BY ME by director Tamara Dondurey, produced by Katia Filippova (Pan-Atlantic Studio) from Russia. Dondurey‘s debut feature film follows a successful young architect whose life spins out of control over night, forcing her to confront the illusion of absolute choice. The project was selected by an expert jury consisting of Eve Gabereau (Modern Films), Lenka Tyrpakova (Karlovy Vary IFF) as well as Waheed Zamani and Robert Wunsch of D-Facto Motion.
