Diab’s drama Clash won the Golden Pram for best film at the Zagreb Film Festival in 2016.
On the last day of the festival the total number of audience votes also revealed the winner of the audience award of the 6th KinoKino festival, which is the Danish film about a small magician with a big heart, Buster’s World, directed by Martin Miehe-Renard.
