Closing ceremony of the festival

Two Kristián awards were presented at the festival’s closing ceremony. The first was received by a French director with a distinctive style, Leos Carax, whose three most important films were screened during this year’s Febiofest. The second recipient of the festival’s top honour was French acting star Catherine Deneuve, who on Wednesday introduced her film A Christmas Tale. That film was directed by Arnaud Desplechin, another distinguished guest at this year’s festival, and earned a special jury award for Catherine Deneuve at the Cannes IFF in 2008.
