Tonight the Best Film Award was given to the Mexican feature film Estación Catorce by Diana Cardozo and the Best Spanish Film Award to Cinco Lobitos by Alauda Ruiz de Azúa during the festival's Closing Gala

Tomorrow the 5th edition of the Madrid Film Festival for Women will come to an end, for which 5,085 spectators have already passed, with 8 SOLD OUTS and a total of 3,300 online views.

Today, the Closing Gala of the 5th Madrid Films by Women Festival, took place at the Palacio de la Prensa in Madrid, presented by the journalist Sol Alonso. The event was attended by numerous film directors, actresses, actors and prominent authorities.

During the evening, the festival co-directors presented the 2022 Best Spanish Film Award to Alauda Ruiz de Azúa for her feature film Cinco Lobitos (Lullaby), which participated in the Spanish Authors Competition at Madrid Films by Women Festival 5th edition. The prize consists €3,000 in film equipment rental discounts courtesy of the company RC Service and a mobile phone, model 12 Lite, courtesy of Xiaomi Iberia.

The Best Spanish Film award to Cinco Lobitos (Lullaby) was granted by a jury made up of the journalists Marta Pedraza, Mariasun Miguel and Anna Maccanuco, members of the Blogos de Oro Awards Association, for "the film’s ability to make a vivid portrait of maternity and family ties from a tangible and emotional honesty. A piece of life within life, in a time – the present – of redefinition of roles, in which what never changes is the matrix source of affections".

Later on, the Argentine director Ana Katz and the director Víctor García León, members of the Jury of the International Competition, together with the actress Irene Escolar, presented the 2022 Madrid Films by Women Festival’s Best Film Award. It consists of color correction in 4K for 3 weeks in the Místika digital cinema room of Free Your Mind, valued at €30,000, for the next feature film by the winning director; the creation of a DCP in the original version with Spanish subtitles by the company Subtitula'm, valued at €1,000; and a mobile phone, model 12 Lite, courtesy of Xiaomi Iberia.

The prize was awarded to the Mexican film Estación Catorce by Diana Cardozo “for her gaze as sensitive as it is honest, when it comes to portraying a raw and current reality. All the interpretations are precise and moving in an intimate mise en scene that, at the same time, dazzles”. The director, who attended the festival thanks to the collaboration of the Centro de Estudios Mexicanos UNAM-España and the Fundación Casa de México en España, received the award from the jury during the Closing Gala and thanked such recognition with some moving words.

Tomorrow the 5th edition of the Madrid Films by Women Festival will come to an end, having reached a total of 5,085 in-person users with 4,504 spectators at the screenings, 581 attendees of professional and training activities and 8 SOLD OUTS; more than 3,300 online views on its FILMIN channel and more than 49,000 viewers on 8madrid TV. An edition that would not have been possible without the invaluable support of all the collaborating entities and venues that have joined the festival once again to build this essential event in the national and international film calendar.
