CALL GIRL picks up FIPRESCI Prize at Toronto International Film Festival

17th Sep 2012
The International Federation of Film Critics (FIPRESCI) Prize for the Discovery Programme for the 37th Toronto International Film Festival has been awarded to the Irish co-production CALL GIRL. 

CALL GIRL is a political thriller and the feature debut of Mikael Marcimain, one of the most celebrated and critically acclaimed directors in Sweden.

Awarding the prize the jury said "With an intense sense of cinema reminiscent of the American thrillers of the 1970s, Mikael Marcimain's debut feature achieves a portrait of an obscure world involving women's rights and political corruption. Marcimain deals with his sensitive subject with immense ease and craftsmanship. Because of these accomplishments the FIPRESCI Award for Best Film in the Discovery programme goes to Mikael Marcimain's Call Girl."

The film is a Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish and Irish co-production, produced by Mimmi Spång for Garagefilm International AB, in co-production with Friland Produksjon A/S, Newgrange Pictures ltd, Yellow Film & TV oy, Film i Väst, Sveriges Television AB, Nouvago Capital AB, The Chimney Pot AB and Dagsljus AB and with the support of the Swedish Film Institute, Finnish Film Foundation, Bord Scannán na hÉireann/Irish Film Board, the Norwegian Film Institute, Nordisk Film & TV Fond and in co-operation with YLE and Windmill Lane VFX - Dublin.
