Another festival, another win! The Wednesday Child snagged the Golden Royal Bengal Tiger Award for Best Film at the 21st Kolkata International Film Festival. Headed by Sharmila Tagore, the jury selected the Best Film and Best Director from 14 short-listed movies. Producer Károly Fehér and lead actress Kinga Vecsei attended the ceremony and accepted the award in person.
After the success in Karlovy Vary and Cottbus, The Wednesday Child finally hits home: The national premiere of Lili Horváth’s debut feature will be held on December 1st in Budapest’s MOM Park Cinemas. The film will be released on December 3rd in selected theatres nationwide, accompanied by road shows in several Hungarian cities and meet-and greet with key cast members.
The Wednesday Child, Lili Horváth’s first feature won the top prize in Karlovy Vary's East of the West competition and snagged the Fedeora (Federation of Film Critics of Europe and the Mediterranean) Award as well. The jury was captivated by the narrative structure, the masterful directing and the high quality of the acting, which all help to push The Wednesday Child way beyond its relatively classical plot.
