Daniele Gaglianone has won the 34th edition of the Rotterdam Festival with the film "Nemmeno il destino" (Not Even Destiny). He was one of the three winners of the 2005 Tiger Awards, given to the best international first and second works.
"We were moved by the way in which Daniele Gaglianone dealt with the relationship between young, rebellious children and their disturbed families. This is a film where the directors eye controls every aspect of what you see" were the comments issued by the jury.
Gaglianones victory wasn't a surprise, as had been tipped as the favorite to win, but the prize is particularly important considering the high level of the other competitors.
