The Ardennes takes the Flesh Blood Award in Beaune

The feature debut of Robin Pront, The Ardennes, has won the Fresh Blood Prize (Prix Sang Neuf) at the eight edition of the International Thriller Film Festival in Beaune, France (30 March – 3 April). Director Robin Pront was on hand to accept the award in Beaune, which comes just before the French release of the film on April 13 by distributor Diaphana.

The Ardennes“It’s extraordinary that a Flemish director is winning prizes as a new talent with his first film,” says The Ardennes producer Bart Van Langendonck. “Beaune is an important festival for genre films and this prize for The Ardennes endorses the positive reactions in the French press.”
