Because we should not look beautiful and sportive to be part of the screen.

Sepse nuk duhet të jemi të bukur dhe sportiv për të qënë pjesë e ekranit.

Best Fiction Short Film


The sound of rain / Jalal Saedpanah / Iran / Fiction / 26’

Through a simple subject, but with a rich cinematic language, this film came through a deep humanity in the ambiguities of the contemporary social order.

Përmes një subjekti të thjeshtë, por me një gjuhë kinematografike të pasur, ky film depërton përmes një humanizmi të thellë në dilemat e rendit të sotëm shoqëror.



Best Animation Short Film


Tale of the wind / Claudio Jordao / Portugal / Animation / 12’

With an almost chromatic fluidity, the film digs the spiritual space full of reflections and harmony, towards the balance between humans and nature.

Me një fluiditet gati kromatik, filmi shtegëton në hapësira shpirtërore plot refleksione e harmoni, drejt ballancës së njeriut me natyrën.

 

Best Documentary Short Film


The conversation / Piotr Sulkowski / Poland / Documentary / 16.30’’

A dialogue in a open shape of a dossier, artistically located into two divided windows but shedding light in a crime documentation, in an emblematic way.

Një dialog në formën e një dosjeje të hapur, i vendosur artistikisht në dy dritare të ndara, por që hedhin dritë në një dokumentacion të një krimi, në një mënyrë emblematike.


Best Experimental Short Film


Paper memories / Theo Putzu / Spain / Experimental / 7.25’’

In an inner journey where the mangled memory of an individual, exposed in a photo format, where the present is artistically discovered as a relation between the past and future.

Një udhëtim i brendshëm ku memorie të coptuara i  shfaqen një individi në formë fotosh, ku e tashmja i zbulohet artistikisht  si një mardhenie mes së shkuarës e së ardhmes.


Best Albanian Movie


Home / Kast Hasa / USA / Fiction

Ka kthime e kthime… Ne kete rast Kast Hasa  kthehet ne shtepi me nje subject ne dukje te thjeshte por qe mbart nje nga dramat e diteve te sotme. Regjizori I ri na sjell afer nje teme pak te diskutuar. Gjymtimi I individit per hir te mirave materiale.

Kast Hasa in the film Home returns to shore with us a story that we are usually not wonting to deal with. The consequences of being part of the modern welfare especially when money is the only motivation.
