Courage: Greg Zglinski
An excellent and sophisticated cinematographic language Courage deals with the issue of moral courage and the sense of guilt. It appeals for more personal responsibility. The film is set in today's Poland and the drama can be perceived as a kind of Abel and Kain story. Two brothers, of different characters and sensibilities, are forced to take over the direction of an Internet distribution company when their father fell ill.

Crulic - drumul spre dincolo: Anca Damian
Crulic is based on a true story about the Romanian emigrant named Crulic in Poland who is accused of having robbed a Polish judge. This animated feature-length documentary, which uses mixed animation techniques, enounces the often discriminatory attitude of authorities towards foreign migrants. It gives a voice to a man who died in an inhuman way, without being heard and who was deprived of his most elementary human rights.

Grey Matter: Kivu Ruhorahoza
Matière Grise reflects on the suffering of those who as children survived the Rwandan genocide. It denounces the mechanisms in which hatred and intolerance are created by media and eventually dehumanize human beings. This feature film shows, how it is important for small countries and their filmmakers to tell their own stories and to reflect on issues that they value the most.

Free Spirit Award - Special Mention
