SHORT FILMS COMPETITION
The Evening her mind jumped out of her head, Kim Noce & Shaun Clark (UNITED KINGDOM 2015)
A black and white film pallet, of creative qualities integrating musicality, absurd humor and precise animation into a complete piece of art.
Three Fitted Flies, Maria Álvarez & Elisa Morais (SPAIN/ LITHUANIA 2015)
A mysterious accident depicted through the minimalistic visual language and absurdity of distorted dimensions.
Best music for animated film
Travelling Country, Ivan Bogdanov & Vessela Dantcheva (BULGARIA / CROATIA 2016)
It uses innovatively the traditional medium of Balkan vocals as an ironic counterpoint to a cruel story, creating a unique atmosphere and advancing the plot in an unexpected way.
(for a Short Film)
Minotaur, Karlis Vitols (Latvia 2016)
Best Feature Film
Psiconautas, the forgotten children, Pedro Rivero & Alberto Vázquez (SPAIN 2015)
It is a film with a daring subject, a graphic novel that comes to life in a well-crafted animation, and an inventive use of subjects for tone shifts and mood changes.
(for a Feature Film)
The Bandit Cucaracha, Juan Alonso & Hector Pisa (Spain 2015)
SHORT FILMS FOR KIDS COMPETITION
Best Film for Kids
Ethnophobia, Joan Zhonga (GREECE 2016)
It was a very pleasant story, with loads of imagination, beautiful colours, as well as funny language and interesting crafts. In a fairly funny manner, we saw the human struggle for survival, the compromises needed in a society but also the domination of the powerful against the weak. Finally, though, when the rain comes, after the war and destruction, we realise how we are all the same.
Special Mention for a Short Film for Kids
Lilou, Rawan Rahim (FRANCE 2015)
It was a funny story with beautiful drawings. We really liked Lilou's character and her magic bow, as well as how she found the power to see the ugly past of the people around her, understand it and help them overcome the adversities in life.
GRADUATION FILMS COMPETITION

Ruben Leaves, Frederic Siegel (SWITZERLAND 2015)

Special Mention for a Student Film
Ayny - My Second Eye, Ahmad Saleh (GERMANY / JORDAN / PALESTINE 2016)
A film with compelling sound design and powerful moments of silence. The artist achieved an expression of music through silence. It is a request for peace.
