After the world premiere at the Venice International Film Critics' Week and the triumph at the Tokyo International Film Festival, Crater wins the Special Jury Prize at the 15th Crossing Europe Festival in Linz, Austria. The Austrian festival hadn't featured an Italian film in its main competition since 2014.

The jury praised Silvia Luzi's and Luca Bellino's capacity of "testing the boundaries of realism" and of "creating an intense cinematic experiment."

In collaboration with Istituto Luce Cinecittà, this year the Austrian festival hosted an Edoardo Winspeare retrospective, too. In the past editions, the only Italian director who enjoyed a tribute was Matteo Garrone.
