The Jury:
Georges Schwizgebel (Chairman)
Andreas Hykade, Andrzej Klimowski, Anita Killi, Nancy Denney-Phelps

On November 25th 2016, after seeing 68 competition films from 30 countries, the Jury decided to award the prizes to the following films:

 

The Grand Prix of the Festival – the Golden Jabberwocky and PLN 15,000 go to

BEFORE LOVE
dir. Igor Kovalyov

„We were taken by the technical perfection of the film’s visuals and sound. Humor permeates jealousy and romance in the smallest detail”.

 

The Silver Jabberwocky goes to

NOČNA PTICA / NIGHTHAWK
dir. Špela Čadež

„This is like a different kind of road movie. The film is well animated and uses a complex multi plan technique. This film deals with an important topic that is often difficult to talk about in an original way”.

 

The Bronze Jabberwocky goes to

CAFÉ FROID / COLD COFFEE
dir. Stephanie Lansaque, Francois Leroy

„To a film that we felt portrayed the descent into insanity in a way that both horrified and mesmeriezed us”.

 

Furthermore, the Special Golden Jabberwocky and 2000 PLN for the best school film go to

CIAŁO OBCE / FOREIGN BODY
dir. Marta Magnuska, prod. PWSFTviT

„This film was beautifully rendered with an economy of line which was also gritty and edgy, conveying a forceful message about social and personal complexes and anxieties”.

 

 

 

HONOURABLE MENTIONS

Nancy Denney-Phelps awarded an honourable mention to

TICK TACK
dir. Ülo Pikkov

„To a film that combines excellent storytelling with inpecible technique”.

 

Anita Killi awarded an honourable mention to

AU REVOIR BALTHAZAR
dir. Rafael Sommerhalder

„My special mention goes to a film narrated in a poetic way, that surprised me and toutched me in the end. The technique, the animation and the graphic style fits the story perfectly.”

 

Andrzej Klimowski awarded an honourable mention to

FIGURY NIEMOŻLIWE I INNE HISTORIE II / IMPOSSIBLE FOGURES AND OTHER STORIES II
dir. Marta Pajek

„We live or most of us have at some time lived in an urban enviroment. The buildings and houses we inhabit we think of as solid, yet, Marta Pajek’s film questions this, taking us ona journey which is unsettling. It is a beautiful nightmare, a visual poem”.

 

Georges Schwizgebel awarded an honourable mention to

CHEZ MOI / MY HOME
dir. Mai Nguyen

„The film transported me into a fantastic world, where I was enchanted by the emotion that comes from a child’s view on reality which it cannot comprehend”.

 

Andreas Hykade awarded an honourable mention to

KOMPOZICIJA / COMPOSITION
dir. Mitja Manček

„For keeping me vital, excited and alive, while still leaving space for my imagination”.

 

 

The Great Underestimated

special award from Bogusław Zmudziński – Artistic Director of Etiuda&Anima IFF

ŠUMA and KUT
dir. Lucija Mrzljak, Estonian Academy of Arts, Estonia

 
 

STUDENT JURY VERDICT

Anna Kubinka, Martyna Hołda and Marzena Pitek awarded

PENELOPE
dir. Heta Jäälinoja,

„We honour a student, yet mature film that uses form smoothly and creatively, and with lightness and humor introduces us into a tangled reality of Penelope, who we met at the moment of trial. The sharpness of observation goes hand in hand with dynamic narration and the freedom of line. It’s exquisitely grotesque and worth appretiating”.
