Grand Prix
Golden Dinosaur

THE VISIT / WIZYTA

dir. Alexandra Roberta Serban, prod. school: Universitatea Nationala de Arta Teatrala si Cinematografica I.L. Caragiale, country: Romania

Justification:
“With an almost casual ordinariness, this film gives us an insight into a dark chapter of Romanian history. Masterfully realized, Roberta Serban and her team touched us unobtrusively with a deep story between conversations about poems, weapons and salami. May the curse of the falling dinosaur be with her”


Silver Dinosaur

CHIN UP, DUDE / GŁOWA DO GÓRY, ZIOMEK

dir. Florian Moses Bayer , prod. School: Filmakademie Wien, country: Austria

Justification:
“To florian Moses Bayer for daring to question traditional masculinity in such a lovely and funny way with such charming characters.”


Bronze Dinosaur

A CAPELLA IN D MINOR / A CAPELLA W D MOLL

dir. Malu Janssen, prod. school: Nederlandse Filmacademie, country: Holland

Justification:
“The director Malu Janssen succeeds in creating a light-footed social comedy about the absurd, tragicomic and serious abysses of sexuality - and the hurdles of parenthood in dealing with them”


And awarded special mentions:

3 DAYS, 3 YEARS / 3 DNI, 3 LATA

dir. Florencia Gómez Sántiz, school: Escuela de Cine Documental de San Cristóbal de las Casas, country: Mexico

WINTER

dir. Tomek Popakul, Kasumi Ozeki,Poland 2023

Justification:
„A harsh yet mesmerising film depicting a community seemingly on the brink of apocalypse. The film resembles a cold, beautiful kaleidoscope turning and shifting effortlessly between cruelty and longing, between the sacred and vulgar. An absolute masterclass in technique, writing and direction!”


Silver Jabberwocky

AAAAH!

dir. Osman Cerfon, France 2023

Justification:
„Surprisingly inventive and thrillingly simple. This film manages to convey with affection and humor the simple, primal fact that we are all just animals screaming into the abyss. And its hilarious!”


Bronze Jabberwocky

MISALIGNED

dir. Marta Magnuska, Poland 2022

Justification:
„This film features a strong, confident visual style in its compositions, character designs and animation. Underpinned by deft and elegant editing, it playfully reveals its themes with subtlety, emotion and humour.”


Special Golden Jabberwocky
for the best animated student etude:

IN THE UPPER ROOM

dir. Alexander Gratzer, Hungary 2022

Justification:
„This deceptively simple film evokes a rich, surreal world that is surprisingly moving and emotional. The characters are as bizarre as they are relatable and are rendered with warmth and a very effective lightness of touch. We also loved all the hairiness.”
