Two Schlingel-prizes for Norwegian Gaarder-film
Two juries gave top prizes to Through a Glass, Darkly (I et speil i en gåte), from Jostein Gaarder’s novel, at Schlingel, the international children and youth film festival in Chemnitz, Germany, which closed on October 10.
The professional jury named Jesper W Nielsen’s ”poetic and sensitive film that emboldens” winner of the Junior Film Competition, while the children and youth jury gave it the ç ”because it is based on a real problem, and furthermore is a pretty emotional and instructive movie.”
Through a Glass, Darkly was produced by Turid Øversveen for Spillefilmkompaniet 4½.
For its 14th edition Schlingel had selected 118 films from 39 countries, reaching almost 10,000 admissions.
