*It’s just been announced that the superb LI TONG will be screened tomorrow (wednesday) at the Palacio de Congresos in Santa Eularia at 20.30*

A party to remember, the III Ibiza International Film Festival closed last night with the awards ceremony and extended celebrations at Agroturismo Atzaro.

Originally planned for 7.30 we sat down for the awards at a slightly later 1am by which time everyone was in a very festive mood. We’ll be putting up the 2am video interview we did with Darren Grodsky and Danny Jacobs, the writing/directing team behind competition film Humboldt County in the next few days, once we’ve edited it down to family-friendly parts only. Meanwhile let’s just say a good time was had by all.

As announced yesterday in the press release the Chinese competition film Li Tong by first director Nian Liu won several awards including the Special Falco d’Or for revealing a city and its people. Humboldt County won the award for best first film and the presenters gave Danny and Darren a falcon each to take back to the US with them.

Among the hundreds of guest attendees and cinema folk, a vast majority were connected with the film festival in some capacity. Vic Sarin, the director of the competition film A Shine of Rainbows collected his own Falco d’Or after winning the Audience Award.

For now, congratulations to Atzaro for putting on a stunning party for us.
