Award-winning Filmmaker Sanjeewa Pushpakumara’s next film ‘Amma’ (Mother) won the 'Open Doors' Grant at the prestigious Locarno Film Festival 2018, yesterday.

Sanjeewa won the second highest film development award which also confers a grant of 15,000 Swiss Francs as production support.

The first award was won by Myanmar director The Maw Naing for his film project ‘Ma’ (The Women ).

Sanjeewa’s latest film ‘Devena Vihagun’, (Burning Birds) is now being screened at several theatres in Colombo.

Sri Lanka’s up and coming, young film producer Sumudu Malalagama won the Open Doors- Torino Film Lab (TFL) award. Along with the award, Sumudu will get film training at the TFL.

One of the world’s longest film festivals, Locarno celebrates its 71 anniversary this year and eight selected film projects from the South Asian region were selected under ‘Open Doors Hub’, an international co-production platform to promote South Asian cinema.

During the festival, the selected project teams were introduced to European and international professionals in order to encourage international collaborations, mostly in terms of co-production, funding and distribution but also to help them to avail themselves of professional training by experts.

The Open Doors Hub film grant is supported by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and the City of Bellinzona by the Swiss fund for production support Visions Sub EST. (Susitha R. Fernando)

    This is the only trade the dirty politicians have not poked in. Perhaps nothing to LOOT there, that's why.
