CPH:FORUM hands out 2023 awards

Three awards were presented at the 2023 CPH:FORUM in various categories by Eurimages and Unifrance. The Special Eurimages Development Award, worth €20,000, was given to support the Ukrainian film industry. The project that received the award was RED ZONE, directed by Iryna Tsilyk and produced by MOON MAN (Darya Bassel, Ukraine), which offers a personal and female perspective on the impact of war.

CPH:FORUM and Eurimages have partnered for the tenth year to present the Eurimages Co-Production Development Award, which this year went to ONLY ON EARTH by Robin Petré and produced by Hansen & Pedersen (Signe Skov Thomsen, Malene Flindt Pedersen, Denmark, Spain). The film takes viewers on a journey into Galicia, one of Europe’s hottest fire zones, where wild horses play a crucial role in fire prevention but are threatened by the clash between humans and nature.

This year, CPH:FORUM, Unifrance, and TitraFilm introduced the Unifrance Doc Award for the best French majority or minority co-produced pitch. The winning project, CUBA & ALASKA, produced by 2Brave Productions (Olha Beskhmelnytsina, Ukraine) and TAG Film (Christian Popp, France). The project depicts two young paramedic women Cuba and Alaska live on the edge in the war-torn Kharkiv region – their mission is to save lives while sharing good humour, and belief in victory.
