French film based on Stravinsky's 'Nightingale' wins Golden Prague Festival
While one important music festival - the Prague Spring - begins on Thursday night, another one - Golden Prague - ended on Wednesday. But Golden Prague, although it has a musical theme, is a very different event. It is an international television festival which specializes in TV programs focused on music. On Wednesday night at the Prague Zofin Palace the festival jury announced the winner of the 42nd year of festival.
"It is not only the most important; it is the only TV festival that focuses on music. There are other festivals that have a musical section but here you see the most things. Also for me this festival is the most important one. I've been coming here already four years every year."
"It is incredibly well done. It mixes animation with live actors, it involves many years of work. We all agreed (the jury) that this is the best film we have seen. I think, if you consider the combination of technique, the way of narration and its link to Stravinsky's music, this was the film that had to be the winner."
