Krzysztof Kieslowski Award for Best Feature
Volcano set in Iceland from first-time feature director Runar Runnarson won the Krzysztof Kieslowski Award for Best Feature at The 34th Starz Denver Film Festival.
"We applaud the festival on the stellar films chosen for consideration in this esteemed category. Each selection exemplifies distinct vision and strong directorial voice. However, one film captured our attention early on and stayed with us throughout the process. Our jury deliberation was brisk and unanimous. The winning film delivers a haunting portrait of a life in its final act, and the tragedy and triumph of one man's redemptive journey. The narrative provided quietly unexpected turns that reflect the true unpredictability of life, love, and loss. Anchored by an astounding performance by veteran actor Theodore Juliusson with masterful direction by first-time feature director Runar Runnarson, the winning film presents an unforgettable character rarely seen in cinema. The 2011 Krzysztof Kieslowski Award for Best Feature Film goes to Volcano."
