MAD MAX: FURY ROAD wins FIPRESCI GRAND PRIX
Information Released by AFCA
500 FIPRESCI critics from all over the world voted across a two stage process and selected George Miller's epic battering ram of a film, Mad Max: Fury Road as the Best film of the last 12 months.
The final shortlist put Miller's furious pic up against some solidly prestigious international films including two recent MIFF favorites Hou Hsiao-Hsien's The Assassin and Jafar Panahi's Taxi as well as the soon to be premiering in Australia Son of Saul.
Miller will be presented the award at the upcoming San Sebastian Film Festival and we suspect this won't be the only award he picks up for the film over the coming months.
