Historic moment for Slovenian cinema

My Last Year as a Loser by screenwriter and director Urša Menart wins this year’s Vesna award for best feature film after the Vesna awards for best director were won by Hanna Slak last year for The Miner and Maja Weiss in 2002 for Guardian of the Frontier. This is a historic moment for Slovenian cinema: never before in the history of Vesna awards has the main prize been presented to a female author.
