In the International Competition section, young directors compete for the Golden Athena Award, which comes with a €10,000 cash prize.

The winner is chosen by a European Youth Jury, consisting of 18-25 year old film students from various European Countries.

The Award itself, courtesy of ZOLOTAS jewelers, is a replica of the statue of Athena during the battle between the Olympians and the Giants, as seen in eastern pediment of the old temple of the Acropolis (c. 510 BC,) now kept in the new Acropolis Museum.

The award was collected in person by Moon director Duncan Jones who flew out to Athens this very morning to attend tonights screening.
