WINNER

52 Tuesdays: Sophie Hyde
The situation is exceptional but familiar. This year's winning movie is both suprising and touching. It is a movie about family and the quest for identity, and despite all the conflicts, the protagonists stay connected through their love to each other. The moving story is presented in a fascinating structure and convinces with strong characters, humour, clever ideas and sensitivity.

Generation 14plus - Best Short Film

WINNER

Mike: Petros Silvestros
We've decided on a short movie that illustrates an intricate topic in only a few minutes. The movie creates a frame which spectators then can fill with their own imagination, leaving space for their own interpretation. With subtle imagery, this film tells a story that takes an unexpected turn.

Emo (the Musical): Neil Triffett
This year's special mention goes to a movie that takes a look at group identity and peer pressure, with a surprising and pleasant lightness of touch. It convinced us with its firework of funny dialogues, melodies and humour, making fun of itself while never becoming ridiculous.

WINNERS

Sebastian Mez
Project: "274" -What is exciting about Sebastian Mez's story is its intensity. In this film only the moment counts and Mez knows how to describe it in a very gripping manner. For great loneliness and a deep look into a man's soul, he immerses himself in a strange world and, already in his treatment, finds powerful cinematic images for doing so. A genuine perspective for German cinema.

Sandra Kaudelka
Project: "Intershop" -With Intershop, director Sandra Kaudelka has chosen for her film a world that will instantly awaken memories and arouse the curiosity of everyone who grew up in the days of East Germany. A place to fulfil both dreams and desires, an interface between East and West - Intershop is a potentially compelling, emotional tale, unlike any ever seen in German cinemas. We hope this prize will allow Sandra Kaudelka to continue her work on this project and so to exhaust the possibilities of her subject matter.
