Composers Cristian Lolea and Miroslav Tóth and sound designer Michal Novinski won the Georges Delerue Award for Best Music and Sound Design for Servants at the 47th edition of Film Fest Gent.
The Georges Delerue Award is worth a distribution grant of 10,000 euros and a media campaign of 12,000 euros. About Servants, the international jury composed of Fabrice du Welz, Benh Zeitlin, Natali Broods, Dascha Dauenhauer and Damien Manivel said: “Servants is a great achievement of exceptional cinema. Sound, image and storyline are carefully crafted and every cinematic element is working at the highest level. The ominous score and highly charged sound design support the images in a unique, modern and often distorted way, pushing the film beyond excellence.”
Cristian Lolea and Miroslav Tóth also won the award for Best Original Score at the Saint-Jean-de-Luz International Film Festival. Servants, directed by Ivan Ostrochovský, won the Best Direction Prize of the festival.

The premiere of the film has been postponed in Romania from October 16, 2020, due to COVID-19 restrictions.
