THEY by Ilir Kaso | Albania




HIBERNATION by Tomer Werechson | Israel



The Jury composed by Ben Andoni, Marin Mema, Stanela Kostallari

Mrs. Erde and her collaborators have organized their material into a small segment at each school before moving on to the next and then returning to each school later in the film. By their art you can see really how children’s views might have changed under the influence of their teacher.

By using the Eve Shalom/Whahat Al Salam ("Oasis of Peace") bilingual elementary school, where Israeli and Palestinian kids are taught together by two teachers, one Israeli and the other Palestinian, Mrs Erde showed us the real point of view: How the discussions in this classroom are by definition less one-sided and more dynamic, and could have easily filled an entire film and gone much deeper than Erde does here, by someone else.

And the winner is:

THIS IS MY LAND by Tamara Erde | France & Israel



The Jury composed by Saimir Kumbaro, Edmond Topi, Ina Lisi

Simbolikë e qartë dhe artistikisht e arritur. Vendosje e objektit në mënyrë të natyrshme dhe konkrete në përcjelljen e mesazhit te spektatori. Autorët kanë arritur të sinkronizojnë vlerat artistike me shijet e jurisë dhe besoj edhe me ato të spektatorit që asistoi në projeksion. Personazhi kryesor është mjaft interesant dhe përbën vlere në strukturën e skenarit. Intervistat janë dinamike dhe përcjellin informacion. Kamera është në funksion të tërësisë së dokumentarit.

Fituesi i kategorisë është:

THERE IS LIGHT INSIDE nga Rea Surroi & Dardan Selimaj | Kosova



By the organizers

Black sheep lets us enter deep inside a not only English political issue, the racist extreme right party increasing power, through the look of two young guys. Follow them in a journey to a manifestation, the director analyses without filters the psychology, the social background and finally, the melancholy of a whole young generation.

And the winner is:

BLACK SHEEP by Christian Cerami | UK




Virtuously camera style that tell us a story about the migrants and try to reach paradise so metaphorically stuck on the island of Malta. Looking like kind of paradise the island is actually a place of sorrow for people not in contact with their families and can’t reach mainland Europe.


And the winner is:

EUROPE ENDLESS by Gunther Blauensteiner | Austria



The movie through a little portrait of an illegal business arrives to tell us the problem of surviving in a contemporary society and to make a melancholic and ironic portrait of a Croatian identity.

Goes to:

I SMOKE WHATEVER’S LEFT by Zorko Sirotic | Croatia



The Jury composed by Eroll Bilibani, Gianluca De Serio, Milos Djukelic

Very specific way of storytelling which trough very different video materials and kind of “Homage” to the Vinyl say a story about transition and all the redundancy life brings story made on “sounds” we near while we are trying to calibrate our world and society. An experimental documentary with specific brave style.

And the winner is:

VERY LONG PLAY VINYL by Vladimir Morozov | Russia



The Jury composed by Eroll Bilibani, Gianluca De Serio, Milos Djukelic

For the film that is raveling a story of a long trying to be non-violent struggle and resistance for the own, independent country and identity. The story put the light on for the most of us “invisible” nation of Sarahas/ Burbers and the art as weapon way of growing a wall built in the Sahara desert, their natural habitat.

And the winner is:




The Jury composed by Don Askarian, Martichka Bozhilova, Roland Sejko

It is a great cinematographic journey searching meaning of life and dead, past and future. It is a reflection of the relationship between human being and the universe. It is a very honest intensive and serious artwork.

And the winner is:

THE FORTUNE YOU SEEK IS IN ANOTHER COOKIE by Johannes Gierlinger | Austria



Beautiful story told in a very professional way by a talented and sensitive artistic point of view.

Goes to:

DANCING WITH MARIA by Ivan Gergolet | Argentina
