Oslo/Fusion Film Festival Awards

The award winners of 28th Oslu/Fusion İnternational Film Festival have been announced. The four different juries have seen a lot of international films between 19-23th September and announced the winners of Best Short Film, Best Documentary, Best Queer Youth Film and Best Feature Film last week.

The winner of Best Queer Youth Film Award went to Lukas Dhont’s debut film Girl (2018) which received glowing reviews when it premiered in Cannes Film Festival. Girl focuses on the inner challenges of a teenager trans to be herself while she is struggling to become a ballerina. The jury gave the special mention for this category to the documentary Silvana (2017) which follows the very influential Swedish rap artist, a strong feminist and out lesbian Silvana Imam’s story. The documentary was also awarded with The Best Documentary Award.

Jerry Carlsson’s Shadow Animal (2018) won the Best Short Film award with its unique combination of music, design, dance and fantasy leaving the jury with the thoughts about the difficulties of inclusiveness, the fears of sexuality, the loss of innocence and how a child struggles with the dangers of assimilation. In the same category, a short documentary Beauty (2018) by Christina Willings won the special mention award. The documentary explores the lives of five gender-creative kids and the myriad ways in which their personal journeys are reshaping normative definitions of identity.

This year, Best Feature Film jury decided to select two film to win this award for their excellent and innovative approaches: Sauvage (2018), debut film by Camille Vidal Naquet, and Skate Kitchen (2018) by Crystal Mosselle. Sauvage focuses on Leo’s story, who sells sex in the streets of Paris and falls for Ahd who is also a sex worker. Jury points out that the film gives associations to Love by Gaspar Noe and Weekend by Andrew Haigh creating great expectations for future films. Skate Kitchen is a fresh take on the coming-of-age story with its subtle approach and never sensationalizing the subject. Jury expresses that in her first narrative feature, director Crystal Moselle performs an innovative approach to casting and development to craft a contemporary style that showcases a strong ensemble cast of young women, in a way we have not seen them represented before.
