Lebanon, co-produced by GRINGO’s Sonja Ewers, has won two prizes at the European Film Awards 2010, with director Samuel Maoz taking home the ‘European Discovery of the Year’ prize, and Giora Bejach collecting the award for ‘Best Cinematographer’. The film had also been nominated in four other categories: Best Film, Best Director, Best Screenwriter and Best Editor. (The two Awards round off an incredible run for Lebanon, which has also picked up two Asia Pacific Screen Awards, four Israeli Film Academy Awards and the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival.)
