Winner of the Foxtel Movies Audience Award for best narrative feature went to WINTER SLEEP directed by Nuri Bilge Ceylan. The Foxtel Movies Audience Award for best documentary went to LOVE MARRIAGE IN KABUL directed by Amin Palangi. Festival audience members can rate the films after viewing via the web, app and SMS-based voting systems. These ratings produce the winners for the audience awards.
While I enjoyed Winter Sleep, I am surprised that the 3 hour + Palme d’Or winner won the audience award. It’s a beautiful film but I wouldn’t exactly call it accessible. I did not see Love Marriage in Kabul but I will be sure to keep an eye out for it in the future.
