„I'm very happy about the award because it recognizes not only me as a director, but also everyone who worked with me on creating this movie and everyone who believed in the movie's success from day one. I'm pleased the jury has recognized my work, but I'm even happier to see the reactions of the audience after the screenings and their spontaneous and prolonged applauses. As I said earlier, Avvantura Film Festival is growing year by year, and it's screening excellent movies which makes this festival one of the top festivals in our region. Avvantura Film Festival will surely become a highly respectable festival that no one will want to miss. The screening locations are perfect and the city of Zadar as a host has recognized the value od the film, and its importance for the Croatian cultural screne“, said Ivona Juka.
