Out of 128 nominated films, 7 where chosen as finalists, including Patricio’s latest. The films where exhibited via a live streaming session Friday 7th of August 2020.
The jury made up of: Anna Daneri, Giselda Ranieri, Roberta Segata, were responsible of delivering the awards for several categories, Best film, Best Concept, Best Choreography, and Best Director.
“Próximos”(Close Quartes), won the Best Director award, which was an honour to receive by all involved in the film. The jury commented on this award “For the ability to manage such a complex technical situation, due to light and space conditions; for the use of cutting and the editing, which create a visual storytelling that lightly touches the performer, while raising evocative sets as well as much wider reflections on the human being – here seen as a political, social body interwoven with complaints, relationships, private and collective solitudes-, the award for Best Director goes to Proximos by Patricio Soto-Aguilar.”
