IMG 173517th of September, Bitola – ICFF “Manaki Brothers” is pleased to announce that the international jury for the main competition Camera 300, consisting of the president Phedon Papamichael and members Claire Pijman, Vladimir Samoilovski, Alin Tasciyan and Gokhan Tiryaki decided that the laureates of the 37th “Manaki Brothers” International Cinematographers Film Festival are the following:
The cinematographer from Finland, Jani Petteri Passi is this year’s laureate of Golden Camera 300, for the film “The happiest day in the life of Olli Maki”.
It creates “a genuine and lyrical atmosphere that surrounds the audience and captures the spirit of time and the unique experience of its protagonist.” – according to the jury’s explication.
J.P. Passi received the award seemingly taken by surprise, considering that it was the first time that he and his crew had worked on a feature film.
- Are you sure that you’re not going to take it away? At the opening ceremony I saw a performance where a girl was pointing to the audience with a machine gun, an audience where the president of the Republic was sitting. That was very strange, but me getting an award is even stranger. – said Passi.
