'In the Crosswind': eight festivals, nine prizes ({{commentsTotal}})

"In the Crosswind," the 2014 film about the World War II-era genocide against Estonians, continues its successful festival run, winning the audience prize at the Gothenburg festival, which just ended over the weekend.

The week before that, the film took a special jury prize at the Premiers Plans festival in France, which focuses on directors' first and second full-length features.

Martti Helde's debut film, "In the Crosswind" has now taken part in eight international festivals and claimed nine prizes. It will appear in five additional competitions at major festivals this spring.

On March 11, the film, which is in the form of an edited series of black and white stills, will make its international commercial premiere in France and be screened in more than 50 theaters in that country.

"In the Crosswind" was released in Estonian cinemas in March 2014, and had its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival. At home, film critics picked it as the year's best film in 2014. The same title was claimed by the "Tangerines" in 2013.
