Taklub, by Brillante Mendoza is voted by the audience as Best Feature Film at the Beirut Film Festival.
The Beirut International Film Festival 15th Edition was held on October 7-15, 2015.
Beirut International Film Festival is Lebanon’s oldest and most prestigious film festival. The annual competition includes categories for feature films, short films and documentaries. Recent years have seen smaller and more intimate editions of the festival due to the uncertain political climate in the country.
Taklub is a story of three major characters – Bebeth, Larry and Erwin, whose lives intertwine after the Supertyphoon Haiyan caused the city of Tacloban to its horrendous state – leaving the breathing figures in search of their dead ones, of keeping their sanity intact, and protecting what little faith there may be.
The Beirut Film Festival Jury consist of:
Co-President: Jonathan Nossiter
Co-President: Santiago Amigorena
Member: Alexandra Zawia
Member: Doria-Svetlana Achour
