GENEVA, Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Chrigu from Switzerland has been awarded the Grand Prize in the first ever Reel Lives: Cancer Chronicles Film Festival at a ceremony in Geneva, Switzerland. Runners up prizes were also awarded to The Truth About Cancer (USA) for Best Reportage, The Art of Living (India) for Best Personal Story, The Children of Avenir (Morocco) for Best Organizational Film and Hookah (Israel) for the best Public Service Announcement.

Award winners were chosen from an impressive line-up of 33 finalists from 16 countries. More than 250 films were entered into the competition.

"We are delighted to celebrate the achievements of these outstanding documentary filmmakers. Not only are they innovative and notable artists, they have all been touched by cancer in some way." commented Ann Steyn, chair of the festival jury. "Their experience of cancer, whether it be first hand or caring for a loved one, resonates with many millions of people across the globe."

Grand Prize winner Chrigu tells the story of a young man who once had great plans for the future until, at the age of 21, an advanced-stage tumour was discovered in his neck. Director Jan Gassmann follows Christian Ziorjen's (Chrigu) fight to live and creates a moving and surprising portrait of his best friend.

"I am honoured and delighted that Chrigu has been recognised by Reel Lives, and I applaud all those whose films were included in this remarkable programme," comments Jan Gassmann. "The medium of film is very powerful, especially in such a complex, personal project. Through film, Christian was able to show people what he was really going through and how the disease changed him. It became a kind of helpful self-reflection for him."

Reel Lives: The Cancer Chronicles Film Festival was organized by the International Union Against Cancer (UICC),
