Tribeca Film Festival Awards 2006

Gaston Pauls in Blessed by Fire

Tristán Bauer's Iluminados por el fuego / Blessed by Fire, the story of a veteran from Argentina's disastrous Falklands War, won the Best Narrative Feature Award at the 2006 Tribeca Film Festival. Other winners include Best Actor Jürgen Vogel, as a rapist recently released from prison in Der Freie Wille / The Free Will (Germany); Best Actress Eva Holubová for Ucastnici zajezdu / Holiday Makers (Czech Republic); and Best Documentary Feature The War Tapes, which uses digital images recorded by several members of the U.S. National Guard serving in Iraq. The documentary was directed by Deborah Scranton.

Egyptian director Marwan Hamed was chosen Best New Narrative Filmmaker for his controversial Omaret yakobean / Yacoubian Building, which depicts life - including taboo subjects in Muslim countries, such as homo and hetero sexuality, corrupt religious figures, and pedophilia - in a decadent Cairo apartment building. The Best New Documentary Filmmaker Award went to Pelin Esmer for The Play (Turkey).
