A development prize to Korso at the Holland Film Meeting!
The 2011 Filmmore Innovation Cinema Prize was awarded to Korso by Akseli Tuomivaara and producers Mark Lwoff, Misha Jaari, Elli Toivoniemi. This was a first time when a development prize was awarded to an international project in the Netherlands Production Platform. Jury 2011 / Wim van Slooten (Filmmore), Sander Verdonk (Lev Pictures), Alan Fountain (EAVE): “Over the last two days a number of really interesting projects were presented to us. Korso stood out in its portrayal of young people and its unusually extensive research and we believe it has the potential to make a contribution to a refreshing story of a new generation of young European people. It is an engaging and relevant story about growing up that doesn’t use the Hollywood format about ‘following your dreams’.”
