UN CERTAIN REGARD
This category will bestow a small selection of jury prizes upon the films we screened which were in some way worthy of special merit. The awards aren’t competitive, and will be more light-hearted in tone than the main awards categories.
Nominees will be announced on Friday, the day after the last night of screenings for Cannes in a Van 2011. Details of the time and place of the Van d’Or Awards Ceremony will follow soon after. Watch this space….
