WINNING FILM OF ONE WORLD BRUSSELS 2018

 
The festival jury selected a winning film from a total of 7 documentaries included in the festival programme. 
The award for the winning film goes to Golden Dawn Girls by the director Håvard Bustnes. 
"Golden Dawn Girls puts forward creeping nationalism which is a major concern for democracy, particularly in the context of upcoming European Parliament elections. The movie highlights issues pertinent but not exclusive to Greece. The film itself portrays an interesting new angle on the Golden Dawn party by focusing on the role of women. These previously unknown women are shown to step up to leadership while the men are in pretrial detention, and have the party going. The film is important to show how we should not be blinkers to the rise of fascism within Europe and beyond."
 
The jury´s special mention goes to Watani - My Homeland by the director Marcel Mettelsiefen: "Through the lens of the children brings the major topic of refugee crisis home."
