The other prize awarded to a Chilean production went to Marialy Rivas, Camila Gutiérrez and Pedro Peirano who received the World Cinema Screenwriting Award, Dramatic for Loca y alocada / Young & Wild, the film directed by Rivas. "Do you want to cry? Me too. We grew up in a country during the dictatorship," said Rivas accepting the prize at the awards ceremony. "Since I was seven I wanted to be a filmmaker to escape that violent reality. Every film is an act of love."
These two awards add to the one previously announced for Chilean filmmaker Dominga Sotomayor. As it was reported earlier this week, she received the Sundance Institute / Mahindra Global Filmmaking Award.
