The J. F. Costopoulos Foundation Award was presented in the context of the 63rd Thessaloniki Film Festival to the winning film Cavewoman by Spiros Stathoulopoulos during the closing ceremony of the Festival.

The members of this year’s jury were: Rea Apostolides, producer; Georgis Grigorakis, filmmaker, and Christina Moumouri, director of photography. Here is the jury’s reasoning: “For a particularly inventive film that interweaves the ancient and historical drama with mythology, approaching a bigger-than-life story with a personal narrative and stripped down cinema means, achieving in extracting all the essence out of it.”
