INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION

HAMBURG SHORT FILM AWARD (3.000€):
Mouaad el Salem - This Day Won't Last
Jury Statement: "A strong, unanimous decision by the jury to award the Hamburg Short Film Award to This Day Won't Last. Mouaad el Salem's film takes us into the hiding places of those who are not visible, whose story does not belong to the official narrative, whose voice whispers but is not the one that speaks. Filmmaking in its most necessary form. This Day Won't Last is an urgent film in style and substance, equally gentle and powerful in its exploration of sexuality and the right of all people to live freely. An ingeniously edited composition, ranging from dreams and metaphors to everyday accounts, reveals historically and systemically repressed feelings as fear in a very immediate way."

DEFRAMED PRIZE (€2,000):
Olga Lucovnicova - Nanu Tudor (My Uncle Tudor).
Jury Statement: "Very slowly, almost tenderly and imperceptibly, she pulls the rug out from under our feet. A disturbing piece of family history told with rarely seen directness that sticks. My Uncle Tudor is an unflinching and courageous look into the rarely spoken violence of the family environment. With simple means, this touching film proves that great cinema is possible on a small budget." The Deframed Prize, endowed with 2,000 euros, is awarded by the International Jury to a film that deals with reality in a poetic, formal, analytical and unconventional way, ignoring all rules in a forward-looking way.

HAMBURG SHORT FILM CANDIDATE FOR THE EUROPEAN FILM AWARDS:
