Best film in Catalan language:

  • Les distàncies, with Elena Trapé in direction, Miguel Ibañez Monroy in screenplay, Liana Artigal in editing, Julián Elizalde in cinematography and Jordi Rossinyol Colomer in sound.

Elena Trapé dedicated the award to ESCAC founder Josep Maixenchs with these words: «Many of us who are here today are here partly because there was a man who was passionate about cinema and a hard worker, who fought for there to be a film school, and I would like to dedicate the award to Josep Maixenchs.»

Both could repeat this coming Saturday as they are nominated for the Goya Awards.
