Was waiting to post the Persol 3D award winner but hasn't been announced yet, so will be on tomorrow's post. Here it is, Persol 3D awards were given to Avatar by James Cameron and How to Train Your Dragon by Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois.

A few minutes ago was announced the winner of La Navicella: The Ditch, Wang Bing, Hong Kong, France and Belgium. The award ceremony is tomorrow.

Nine minutes ago was announced the SIGNIS Award, that goes to: Meek's Cutoff, Kelly Reichardt, USA. Don't worry all major awards will go in one post but I'm having fun just learning the news.

The jury of 19 young viewers has declared Barney's Version by Richard J. Lewis the winner of the "Leoncino d'Oro Agiscuola per il Cinema" and Julian Schnabel's Miral winner of "31 Segnalazione Cinema for UNICEF".

If you believed that the fest has only major awards check my twitter with announcements of different (and until today, unknown) awards. Better stop or will never publish the post.

Today's Photo

My last photo had to be of Noomi Rapace and was so lucky to find this great photo of her while walking the "streets" -okay the very narrow sidewalks- of Venice.
