Youth Jury Award 2018

THE YOUTH JURY AWARD: 2,000€

LEAN ON PETE
by Andrew Haigh

Honourable mention:
OVER THE LIMIT by Marta Prus

The YOUTH JURY AWARD was awarded to LEAN ON PETE by Andrew Haigh, subsidised with 2,000€. Additionally, a special mention was presented to OVER THE LIMIT by Marta Prus.

Explaining their reasoning, Charel, Daniela, Gabriel, Luca, Guéné, Michel and Sébastien stated:

“We are pleased to present the winner of the 2018 Youth Jury Award of the 8th Luxembourg City Film Festival.

It was a true honour to take part in the Festival. We would first and foremost like to thank Gloria Morano, the Young Audiences Programme Coordinator, and Julie Reuter, her assistant, who have guided us over the course of this edition.

As young cinephiles we had the opportunity to present our own critical opinion of the films we saw. It was truly difficult to choose a winning film. It seemed important not to neglect the other candidates and we would like to mention a particular one which has really made our jury’s deliberations come alive.

This work of art shows why tension, palpable even among the audience in the theatre, is important in any narrative. Our special mention goes to Marta Prus’s film OVER THE LIMIT.

The winning film is a road movie that follows the story of a teenager suffering from the loss of his father who sees no other solution than to cross steppes and cities looking for his aunt and only remaining relative.

We award the 2018 Youth Jury Award to Andrew Haigh’s film LEAN ON PETE. Congratulations.”
