Lebanese actress-director Nadine Labaki on Sunday was awarded the Francois Chalet prize for her film “Halla2 Lawen” (Where Do We Go Now?). The prize is awarded annually for best feature film. Labaki won the trophy under the “Un Certain Regard” category, which contained the event’s second largest pool of competitors.
This is great news for Nadine Labaki but I am curious as to why this award is not shown on the Cannes Festival official website. The movie is showing under the official selection for the mentioned category but it is no where to be seen under the 2011 awards section, nor is Nadine Labaki’s name. [Link]
It’s an “hors concours” prize!
