Two Lebanese films competed in the documentary contest, with Cyril Aris' "The Swing," ("Al-Margoha") taking the GFF's bronze star for documentary film ($7,500).Like the GFF's juried contests, which set aside prizes for best Arab film, the new audience awards (worth $10,000 apiece) were also distributed to Arab and international titles.In the docs contest, "Of Fathers and Sons," Talal Derki's film about family life in the Idlib household of a Nusra Front fighter, walked away with both the silver star for documentary ($15,000) and best Arab documentary film ($10,000).Not surprisingly, "Yomeddine" was called back to the stage to accept the best Arab narrative film prize ($20,000).The platform's juried prize, the CineGouna SpringBoard Awards for film projects in development and postproduction (worth $5,000 apiece), were handed to two projects "1982" by Lebanese director Oualid Mouaness and "Embodied Chorus" by Lebanese director Mohamed Sabbah.
