  • Best film award:
    The Best film award is given to the director Mr. Lin Chih Ju for the Taiwanese film “THE WALL” with a Golden Peacock medal, a cash prize of Rs.10,000,00/- ( Rupees Ten Lakhs) and a certificate.

    A finely crafted film about dreams, hope, betrayal and love that depicts ordinary people coping in politically challenging times. The film is highly cinematic, affecting and makes the political personal. The filmmaker has created a complete world within the four walls of a simple house. We hope the world sees this beautiful film.

    Most Promising Director award:
    The Most Promising Director award is given to Ms. Pongpat Wachirabunjong for the Thai film "Khaw Hai Rak Johg Jaroen" (Me Myself) with a Silver Peacock medal, a cash prize of Rs.5,000,00/- ( Rupees Five Lakhs) and a certificate.

    A film about whether we have the freedom to choose our own life. It depicts a story of hope for a world without discrimination while recognizing the difficulties of coping with being different. Debut director Pongpat Wachirabunjong has made a deeply affecting film that expresses something of the essence of the human spirit. We look forward to seeing many more films from this talented new director.

    The Special Jury award is shared by two film personalities

    Special Jury Award is given for the Story of the Bangladeshi film - "Swopnodanay" (On the Wings of Dreams) written by Mr Golam Rabanny Biplab with a silver peacock medal, a cash prize of Rs. 2,50,000/- and a certificate.

    A simple realist story about a poor man who has the chance to dream of another life but discovers the things he already has are more important than the dream. This classic story has been told simply without western influence and resonates a truth about life for millions of people around the world.

    Special Jury Award is given to the child artist (Miss) Julia Urbini for her Performance in the Mexican film – "Mas Que A Nada En El Mundo" (More than Anything in the World) with a silver peacock medal, a cash prize of Rs.2,50,000/- and a certificate.

    In a film that tells the story of a child craving for her mother’s love, the performance of the child actor is central to the film’s success. Playing the child character, Julia Urbini gives an enchanting, nuanced performance that helps make this film special. Her remarkable performance allows us to engage with the child’s imagination, her anguish, her fears and ultimately her love for her mother.
