Ahead of tonight’s Un Certain Regard prizes comes word that the International Federation of Film Critics has honored three films in three Cannes sections. Directors’ Fortnight title Blue Ruin, which Radius-TWC has Stateside, took the FIPRESCI prize for a film in a parallel section. Jeremy Saulnier directs. Abdellatif Kechiche’s hot Competition title Blue Is The Warmest Color was FIPRESCI’s pick from among that section. Sundance Selects previously acquired that one. In the Un Certain Regard sidebar, banned Iranian filmmaker Mohammad Rasoulof’s Manuscripts Don’t Burn was the FIPRESCI winner. Cineuropa reports that prizes were also handed out by the Ecumenical Jury today, with Asghar Farhadi’s The Past (Sony Pictures Classics) the main winner. Hirozaku Kore-Eda’s Competition title Like Father, Like Son and Valeria Golino’s Un certain Regard entry Miele each received a special mention.
