Isván Kovács’s graduate film, The Siege was rewarded as the best film at the Young Director Award, organized by the Commercial Film Producers of Europe at Cannes Lion. The short film that tells the story of a woman at the war in Sarajevo has already won the Student Oscar, and now is going to Karlovy Vary for the next competition. We go on keeping fingers crossed!
