You have no idea how glad I’m that Gigola was honored as means that film has to be interesting beyond the lesbian interest genre. Here is what the jury said:
The jury is pleased to announce that the award is given to an unusual director that drags us on a trip to Paris during a period when women's sexual freedom was always a challenge. Special mention to Lou Doillon for her role in “Gigola”.

To check winners in all categories please go here. So that’s for this year and as always I’ll be looking forward to next year edition mainly because is in this fest where the EFA’s nominations are announced. Olè!!!
