Rafa Sales Ross Guest Contributor Zeki Demirkubuz’s “Life” was awarded the Golden Bee for Best Feature Film at the second edition of the Mediterrane Film Festival.

Mahdi Fleifel’s Un Certain Regard breakout “To a Land Unknown” took the Jury’s Choice prize, while Brandt Andersen’s “The Stranger’s Case” won Golden Bees for Best Director for Andersen and Best Acting for Yasmine Al-Massri.

The awards were handed out at a glitzy ceremony at the grand Fort Manoel in the Maltese capital of Valletta, which served as a location for “Game of Thrones” and “Assassin’s Creed.” BAFTA-winning British filmmaker Mike Leigh (“Secrets and Lies,” ‘Vera Drake”) was honoured with the festival’s Career Achievement Award after giving an extended career talk earlier at the festival, with Maltese veteran production coordinator Rita Galea (“World War Z”) receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award.

This year’s jury was headed by Scottish filmmaker Jon S. Baird (“Tetris”) and featured casting director Margery Simkin, director Mario Philip Azzopardi, production designer Nathan Crowley, cinematographer Pedro Luque, writer/director Richie Mehta and director Tim Miller.
