Awards for 2011

Tiger Award

WINNERS

Finisterrae: Sergio Caballero
The outsider in this competition. Searching for the boundaries in this festival, for the edgy, the off-beat. Best animal performances in a film. The ghost of this competition.

Tee rak: Sivaroj Kongsakul
With a great sense of cinematic duration, this film builds its own universe, finding its own pacing, so consistently, to tell its particular story. A film that seems on the surface to be about death but which is really about love, a beautiful and delicate love story.

Musanilgi: Jung-bum Park
A strongly constructed narrative. A survivor's story. Throughout the film the character, immersed in an ethical disorientation, keeps a constant demeanor. A mature debut film for a new director. This social drama provides us with another dimension or perspective on the Korean situation.

IN-COMPETITION











Tiger Award for Short Film

WINNERS

Stardust: Nicolas Provost
We admire Stardust by Nicholas Provost for revealing in an unexpected way the possibility of documentary in fiction and of fiction in documentary and for showing one of the most photographed, analyzed, theorized cities in the world, Las Vegas, in an original way that is true and valid, uncovering something new about the place that resists the clichés.

Pastourelle: Nathaniel Dorsky
A fine example of Dorsky's uncompromising originality as a filmmaker, the filmed shots are beautiful; the editing balanced, resulting in a disarming and elegant work of cinema. This silent film is pure, timeless and refreshing for the gaze.

Jan Villa: Natasha Mendonca
In Jan Villa, the filmmaker succeeds in telling a deeply moving story that is at once personal and universal. What begins as an outsider's point-of-view imperceptibly transforms to subjective camera. Through poetic images and notably without the use of voice-over, the film maker intimately reveals to us the soul of a city after devastation.

IN-COMPETITION



























Rotterdam Award

Works Award

WINNER

Prix UIP Rotterdam (European Short Film)

WINNER

I lupi: Alberto De Michele
We were impressed with the editing, sound mix and the contrapuntal relationship of the voice-over to the images. I Lupi is a film that manages to show night and darkness in a new way. A film which is minimal and sparse, but nonetheless engaging and intriguing.

Audience Award

WINNER

Dioraphte Award

WINNER

KNF Award

WINNER

Han jia: Hongqi Li
It is a film that is sober in its imagery, but by using sound, dialogue, rhythm in the montage and humour in the script the film that the director has crafted finally transcends reality and turns the boring daily routine of a small Mongolian town into something astonishingly beautiful.

A simple and at the same time powerful film, complete in its details, that brings you to the world in which people live by themselves.

The Day I Disappeared: Atousa Bandeh Ghiasabadi
The visual and sonic poetry recalls us the best that cinema can offer. Contemplative and shining.
