The Festival was established in 2003 and has evolved to one of the most influential professional documentary film festivals in the world.
The finalists will be announced in mid-November.
The jury, comprised of Heleen Gerritsen (goEast, Germany), Karin Rywkind Segal (Docaviv, Israel) and Luisa Schwamborn (New Docs, Germany), stated: “Beautifully shot on 16mm, this is a powerful film that captures an in-between moment, at the end of adolescence, a play of youth and light located in a rural place, in an unrecognized country. A very loving view on a dynamic group focused around an unusual and unforgettable female character.”
Congrats to director Anna Eborn, producers David Herdies, Katja Adomeit, the whole team & cast and of course specially our Belgian team with cinematographer Virginie Surdej, composer Walter Hus, color grader Peter Bernaers. The film is internationally represented by CAT&Docs.

Great news for ‘Overseas‘: the film wins the award for Best Documentary Film at Warsaw Film Festival. Here is the jury statement : “The author of this film stands on the side the weak and the wounded; in a delicate film form shows us drama of women compelled to separation with their families, loneliness and ruthless exploitation. In this lucid but very moving story, we saw the metaphor of a modern world full of injustice in which slavery still exists. This film is an excellent example of what “art of documentary” means – it’s humane, it’s precise and it’s making us reflect on our existence. The Best Documentary Award goes to “Overseas” by Sung-a Yoon.”
Great news for our co-production Overseas who won the Best Documentary Feature Award at Hamptons International Film Festival. Big thumbs up for director Sung A Soon, the whole team behind the film and the producers Isabelle Truc (Iota Production), Quentin Laurent (Les Films de l’oeil Sauvage) & the team of our company Clin d’oeil films.
