    "Ultima Thule" by Agata Wozniak 700 €

    The jury's statement: A short film between experiment and documentation that remains powerful while using few effects. The film explores the theme of physicality and questions the very medium of film itself. The limits of both the actor and the director are driven to its extreme boundaries. With this first work at the School for Film and Television Munich Agata Wozniak takes a courageous step that deserved the jury’s recognition and support.

    "The Heart Is Sad" by Milena Olip 700 €

    The jury's statement: This film, about two people who have little to say to each other after many years together, investigates one of the more prevalent ironies surrounding the concept of relationship. There is growing interpersonal distance and at the same time intimate familiarity in the relationship of the aging couple while their only son is alienating more and more. The words "I love you" remain unspoken. The film was able to convince the jury with its emotional depth and its overall approach that leaves much room for own interpretations.
