Krakow Film Festival 2024

Winners announced for the 2024 Doc Alliance Award

The Doc Alliance Award 2024 winners were announced tonight at Docudays UA in Kyiv. The Best Feature Film prize, worth 5,000 euros, went to The Landscape and the Fury by Nicole Vögele. Camille Vigny’s Crushed won the Best Short Film award, receiving 3,000 euros. Both films were nominated by Visions du Réel. A Special Mention was awarded to getty abortions by Franzis Kabisch, nominated by DOK Leipzig.

The jury comprised Olivia Cooper-Hadjian, Beatrice Fiorentino, and Marko Grba Singh. The Landscape and the Fury is a cinematographic essay by Vögele, exploring displacement and violence in the Bosnian-Croatian border region. The jury praised its bravery and camerawork, highlighting Vögele’s unique perspective on the refugee crisis.

Crushed, a short film by Camille Vigny, recounts her personal experience with domestic violence through a powerful visual metaphor. The jury honoured Vigny’s use of cinematic language to convey her trauma, emphasising the film’s emotional and political impact.

Franzis Kabisch’s getty abortions received a Special Mention for its exploration of media images of abortion and their emotional impact. The jury commended its audio-visual narrative and its examination of media’s influence on self-perception.

The Doc Alliance network, comprising seven European documentary film festivals and the guest festival Docudays UA, supports emerging documentary talent. Each festival nominates one short and one feature-length documentary from its programme, with selections showcased at subsequent festivals.
