First Eurimages Audentia Award to “The Magic Mountain”

And the first Audentia Award goes to Anca Damian director for her film "Muntele magic" (The Magic Mountain)

The Magic Mountain is a 2015 Romanian animated drama film directed by Anca Damian. It tells the story of Adam Jacek Winkler, a Polish anti-communist who in the 1980s fought against the Soviet Union in the Soviet–Afghan War, alongside Ahmad Shah Massoud. The film was co-produced with French and Polish companies. It was made using a mix of animation techniques and Winkler's personal photographs, sketches and film footage.[1] The English-language version of the film stars Jean-Marc Barr as the voice of Winkler.

Eurimages took a step towards greater gender equality by deciding to offer a Best Female Director Prize, worth €30,000, at a future international film festival. This is in addition to a whole raft of measures adopted by the Board of Management of the Strasbourg-based Fund to promote more balanced representation of women and men in the European film industry, both on and off screen.
