‘I am not from here’ wins at Visions du Réel 2016

Maite Alberti (CH) & Giedre Zickyte (LI)

The CPH:LAB film ‘I am not from here’ by filmmakers Maite Alberti (CH) and Giedre Zickyte (LI) just won one of the main awards at this year’s Vision du Réel!

Last Sunday the film world premiered at the festival in Nyon to great feedback from the audience, and this Friday the jury showed their great appreciation of the film, too, when it was awarded best short film in international competition.

Maite and Giedre are such a wonderful team, and we could not be more thrilled to see that their joint efforts to create this little gem of a film have now been rewarded in Nyon. Being there at the world premiere was an incredible experience. To feel that the audience really connected with the film in the same way we do made us very happy and honored.

Congratulations to the talented team – you deserve it!
