Slovak Film Awards for FFC Films

Last year's FFC main award winner 107 MOTHERS received the IGRIC Award for Best Feature Film.

The IGRIC awards are given annually by the Slovak Film Union, the Slovak Union of Television Producers and the Literary Fund for innovative film and television productions inspired by the humanistic ideals of European culture.

Peter Kerekes' cinematographer Martin Kollár received the award for best picture design. Věra Lacková, who participated in the jury for the Dialogue Award for Intercultural Understanding at the 2021 FFC, received the award for best television documentary for HOW I BECAME A PARTISAN, in which she tells the story of Roma in the anti-fascist resistance in the 1940s.

Other prizes went to SAVING THE ONE WHO IS DEAD, which ran in the 2021 FFC competition, and KRYŠTOF. The feature film by Zdeněk Jiráský is about a young monk who brings refugees across the border to Bavaria after the Communists take power in Czechoslovakia and has to flee himself when he is caught.

The Czech-Slovak co-production is one of nine films with Slovak participation to screen at the FFC in November 2022, including Ivo Rastislav Boroš's small-town gangster comedy GOLDILOCKS AND GLORIOUS LOSERS, Michal Blaško's stirring personal political drama VICTIM, which recently screened at the Venice Film Festival, Tereza Nvotová's nature-mythical psycho-horror drama NIGHTSIREN and Ivo Trajkov's morality tale THE BALLAD OF PIARGY, which is laced with folkloric motifs.
