Alain Gomis' film Félicité wins a Silver Bear at Berlin

Produced by andolfi and Granit Films, with sales handled by Jour 2 fête, the film by Alain Gomis was honored at the Berlin International Film Festival with the prestigious Silver Bear Grand Jury Prize.

Félicité, which tells the story of a nightclub singer in Kinshasa who is trying to scrape together enough money to pay for her son's hospital bills after he is injured in a road accident, deeply moved the jury of this year's Berlinale, led by Paul Verhoeven. The jury thus awarded its Grand Jury Prize to the fourth feature by Alain Gomis' (As a Man, Andalucia, and Today).

Another title from the Official Selection also features in the awards list: the Romanian film Ana mon amour by Calin Peter Netzer (a minority-French co-production, via Sophie Dulac Productions) received a Silver Bear for Outstanding Artistic Contribution for its editing (by Dana Bunescu).

In the Panorama section, I Am Not Your Negro by Raoul Peck won 1st Prize in the Audience Award for a Documentary, while the Franco-Belgian production Une famille Syrienne by Philippe Van Leeuw picked up the 1st Prize in the Audience Award for Best Fiction Film.
