Carlos Reygadas's Silent Light won the Motovun Propeller, the main prize of the 10th Motovun Film Festival, which wrapped Aug 1. The festival favourite and Cannes jury award winner was named Best Film by Slovenian actress Milena Zupancic, British director Pawel Pawlikowski and Pavle Levi, professor of film studies at the Stanford University.

The A to A award for the best film from the region from Austria to Albania went to the winner of Austrian national festival Diagonale, Gotz Spielmann's Revanche. The jury was comprised two pairs of siblings: Macedonian director Teona Mitevska and actress Labina Mitevska, Croatian producer and director Nenad Puhovski and actor Zarko Puhovski.

The jury for the best short film -- comprising the famed 'Three Stefans': Sofia Film Festival director Stefan Kitanov, Warsaw International Film Festival director Stefan Laudyn and Prague Febiofest director Stefan Uhrik -- honoured Ana Felicia Scutelnicu's Between Walls and gave special mention to Irena Skoric's Farewell.

The FIPRESCI award went to Slovakian Juraj Lehotsky's Blind Loves, Slovenian Metod Pevec's Estrellita received the Amnesty International Human Rigths Award, and Zrinko Ogresta's Behind The Glass won the audience award.

Ken Russel came to town to receive the newly established Motovun Maverick award for 'extraordinary achievement in broadening the borders of acceptable and decent in film, for single-mindedness and originality, the love of play and unpredictibility, for persistance and above all, a mastery of cinematic art.'
