(ANSA) - TRIESTE, 28 GEN - "A remarkable participation of the audience in the opening and closing evenings, but above all, a generational shift, as a significant amount of young audience joined the traditional fans who have always followed us.

Perhaps this has marked the change of pace this year," the co-director of the Trieste Film Festival, Nicoletta Romeo, told ANSA after the 33rd edition of the festival.

"Many university students and young people attended the festival - Romeo added - coming from various parts of Italy and Europe.

We are pleased. There has been a training course, the Trieste Film Festival Academy, set up a few years ago, but more than 100 university students participated, coming from Italian and foreign academies or film faculties, from Bulgaria, Austria, Hungary. A special edition and beyond expectations". Among the prizes awarded is the Audentia Eurimages - Council of Europe Prize, which goes toward greater gender equality in the audiovisual world, awarded by the jury to 'Women Do Cry' by Mina Mileva and Vesela Kazakova, a Bulgarian-French co-production.

The prize for the best feature film in the competition went to 'Xntregalde' by Romanian Radu Muntean, a renowned Romanian nouvelle vague author. The best documentary was 'Tvornice radnicima' by Srđan Kovačević, a Croatian documentary that tells the story of a factory self-managed by the workers. Among the out-of-competition documentaries, 'Bosnia Express' by Massimo D'orzi, based on the book 'Bosnia Express' written by Luca Leone, and 'L'ultimo calore d'acciaio' by Francesco De Filippo and Diego Cenetiempo, which tells the story of the Ferriera," the iron and steel plant in Trieste, closed after 123 years and numerous changes of ownership (ANSA).
