Prague leg of One World film festival comes to a close

Thursday marks the close of the tenth One World festival of human rights documentary films in Prague. The festival will now move on to 28 other Czech towns and cities. This year, the Prague leg of the festival enjoyed a record attendance of around 45,000 visitors - a figure up nearly 10,000 on the previous year. The prize for best film at the festival was given this year to the Brazilian director Maria Ramos for her movie ‘Juizo’. Best director went to Tchao Liang for ‘Crime and Punishment’. Homegrown ‘Citizen Havel’, directed by Pavel Koutecký and Miroslav Janek, also won a special mention from the festival jury.
