At last, Mantaray Film was given the opportunity to throw a party in the new premises at Kattgränd 10. The old address at Tjärhovsgatan will still be used within the company's business.
"This is no representation party, but an opportunity for all project staff members to meet each other," the company director Stina Gardell explained, before she briefly mentioned all the projects currently produced by the company.
This year's Golden Manta went to Manal Masri and Frans Huhta. 2017 honorary award went to Hanna Lejonqvist for her great effort as an editor on the film Letters to a serial killer.
