Cannes winner Winter Sleep and Berlin victor Black Coal, Thin Ice amongst line-up.
The 62nd San Sebastian Film Festival (Sep 19-27) has released the line-up for its Pearls strand.
Among the selected films are the winner of the Golden Bear at this year’s Berlinale, Black Coal, Thin Ice by Yinan Diao, and the film that received the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival in May, Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s Winter Sleep.
The section also features new works from directors such as Isao Takahata, Xavier Dolan, Wim Wenders, Abel Ferrara, Laurent Cantet, Naomi Kawase and Mathieu Amalric.
All of the films in the Pearls Section will compete for the Audience Award, with votes cast by spectators at the first public screenings of each film in the section.
The Audience Award is split into two prizes: a First Prize for Best Film, with €50,000 ($67,000), and a Second Prize for Best European Film, with €20,000 ($27,000). The Audience Award goes to the distributor of the film in Spain.
