#FilmNominations2014 : Best First Feature


In the category destined to reward fresh directorial talent and their debuts, four of the six works shortlisted are multiple nominees and have already been introduced elsewhere: Dan Gilroy’s creepy look at media’s appetite for sensationalism in ‘Nightcrawler’; Benedikt Erlingsson’s awe inspiring Icelandic drama “Of Horses and Men”; Jennifer Kent’s acclaimed Aussie horror ‘The Babadook’ and Diego Quemada-Díez’s moving social realism in ‘The Golden Dream’.

The remaining two come from Singapore, Anthony Chen’s tender look at the special bond between a solitary child and his house’s domestic helper in ‘Ilo Ilo’ and from the UK, a look back at the Ulster conflict in Yann Demange’s thrilling ‘‘71’.
