In the awards section, the Serielizados Fest has distinguished two series of the official section: Suspicion (Czech Republic), which has been awarded the Jury Prize, and Ida takes charge (Norway), which has received the Young Jury Prize.

  • Suspicion (Czech Republic, 2021). One of the most chilling performances in recent years. Based on true events, this drama narrates the life of Hana Kučerová, a cold and distant nurse with no social skills, who often treats her patients badly. When one of them dies under suspicious circumstances, it becomes clear to the media, the police and her colleagues that she is the one who did it. A brilliant miniseries that does not try to blame, but to identify the difference between truth and appearance.
  • Ida takes charge (Norway, 2022). Ida moves to Oslo to study psychology. Her greatest fear is a terrorist attack at her own university, like the ones on the news. All hell breaks loose when she meets Aksel, a lone wolf labeled as incel (celibate).

Serielizados Fest 2022 says goodbye to its public, to prepare it’s 10th edition!
