Samuel Benchetrit's film Chien picks up 3 awards at the Namur FIFF
Could we say that Chien, the sixth feature by Samuel Benchetrit (seen here with Martin Provost at the awards ceremony), is a niche market film? Nothing could be farther from reality at this point, since it has just won three awards at the Namur International French-Language Film Festival, including the Bayard d'Or for Best Film and the Best Actor Award.
Other prizes presented at the festival's closing night awards ceremony held on October 6 notably honored Les Bienheureux by Sofia Djama, 12 Days by Raymond Depardon, and Mama Colonel by Dieudo Hamadi.
A delegation of around sixty actors and directors traveled to Namur to take part in the 32nd edition of one of the world's biggest festivals dedicated to French-language cinema.
