Cobileanski’s The Unsaved wins FIPRESCI award at Cottbus Film Festival

The feature movie “The Unsaved” directed by Igor Cobileanski received on Saturday evening the award of the International Federation of Film Critics (FIPRESCI) at the International Film Festival taking place in Cottbus, Germany over November 5-10, according to the event’s website. The movie is a Romanian-Moldovan co-production. The movie was shot in the Republic of Moldova for 35 days, and the post-production works have been conducted in Bucharest. The script belongs to Igor Cobileanski and Corneliu Porumboiu. “The FIPRESCI jury wants to reward the outstanding achievement of a first-time director from one of the poorest countries in Europe, a country which until recently had no independent existence and no significant cinematic tradition of its own,” the festival’s organizers said in a release.
