Winter’s Bone wins a prize at Berlinale

Two quick updates today.

Winter’s Bone has won an independent jury prize at the Berlin Film Festival, which closes on Sunday.

The independent juries judging the line-up for the 60th Berlin International Film Festival spread the joy far and wide this year, picking an eclectic mix of titles from across all the Berlinale sections.

The FIPRESCI association of international film critics honored Danish drama “A Family” from director Pernille Fischer Christensen as the best film in competition this year. FIPRESCI picked Japanese feature “Parade” from Isao Yukisada as the best Panorama title and Oscar Ruiz Navia’s “Crab Trap” as the top film running in the Forum sidebar.

The Prize of the Guild of German Art House Cinemas went to “Shahada,” the student film from first-timer Burhan Quarbani, which was a surprise addition to the Berlinale competition while the International Confederation of Art House Cinemas honored Jan Hrebejk’s “Kawasaki’s Rose” with its Panorama prize. Debra Granik’s Sundance hit “Winter’s Bone” won the Confederation’s prize for best Forum film. [Hollywood Reporter]

Oliver Sherman going to Berlinale

Looks like Oliver Sherman will be getting some promotion at the Berlin Film Festival, too. I can’t find anything about it being screened there (it’s still in post-production), but the film will be part of the Canada at Berlinale 2010 program and probably looking for a European distributor.

The film now also has a page on The Film Works’ site.

Berlinale kicks off on February 11. Winter’s Bone has its first screening on Feb. 16.
