Winners Sitges 2018: “Climax” Best Movie

The 51st edition of the Sitges Festival has succumbed to the satanic party of Gaspar Noé . After winning the Golden Meliés for the Best European Fantastic Film, “Climax “ also wins the Official Selection taking the highest award. An unbeatable news to celebrate its premiere in theaters this weekend thanks to the colleagues of Avalon. Great day also for ” Lazzaro Felice” : Special Mention of the Jury, Best Film for the Young Jury and also Critics Award. An issue dismissed by the controversy that yesterday caused the premiere of “Bocadillo” , which revolutionized Twitter and an audience that is still divided between anger and curiosity.
