  • Good for Janus Metuz. I love that Critics Week get a cheque as well as a Trophy. I was once involved in a Critics Week film with the lovely English PR Phil Symes and it won! Yay! Phil was so chuffed when the director told us he'd got a cheque as part of the prize, he bought us all pink champagne! This was many years ago and it was the first time I had worked on a CW film. it was a shoestring budget English, controversial movie, but excellent, and the prize cheque was then in French Francs, but it enabled to director to go on working.
