Silver Puma for Best Director
This is one of the most valuable awards of FICUNAM. For the first edition, the winner of the Silver Puma for Best Director was
Athina Rachel Tsangari for "Attenberg" (Greece, 2010)
This year, the international jury was composed by Jonathan Rosenbaum (Critic), Sergei Dvortsevoy (Director), Nicolás Echevarría (Director), Emmanuel Burdeau (Critic), and Roberto Fiesco (Director).
"Our selection of best director goes to a filmmaker whose story about the love between a father and daughter plays against the uncertainties of life, sex and death in relation to the cataclysmic transition in Greece from peasant culture to industrialization."
