The 77th Venice Film Festival has ended in Italy today. The film "Dear Comrades" by Andrei Konchalovsky received a special jury prize, but who became the owner of the "Golden Lion"? We tell you in our material.

The awards ceremony took place at the main site of the oldest film screening on the island of Lido. 18 films competed for the main prize, including "Dear Comrades" (directed by Andrei Konchalovksiy), "The World to Come" (directed by Mona Fastwold Lerche), "The Malacuzo Sisters" (directed by Emma Dante), "New Order" (directed by Michel Franco), Lovers (directed by Nicole Garcia), Fragments of a Woman (directed by Cornel Mundruzzo) and others.

"The Golden Lion" at the 77th Venice Film Festival was awarded to the film "The Land of the Nomads" by director Chloe Zhao. The jury's Grand Prix was awarded to the Mexican dystopia "New Order", and Francesco Favino became the best actor and winner of the "Volpi Cup" for his role in the film "Our Father" directed by Claudio Noce.

This year, Russian director Andrei Konchalovsky did not remain without an award. His film "Dear Comrades" received a special jury prize at the film festival. The director posed on the red carpet with his muse and part-time wife, Yulia Vysotskaya. However, there were no Hollywood stars (except for Cate Blanchett) at the event. Perhaps it's still a pandemic. The coronavirus has made its own adjustments to the dress code: all guests of the ceremony of the oldest film screening were in the hall wearing masks and sat with a social distance, because of which the hall was half empty.
