Sleepwalkers Jury Prize

International Student Film

WINNER

The Mass of Men: Gabriel Gauchet
"A story told twice from two very different perspectives, revealing how a highly streamlined social system can turn one human being into a desperate, nervous wreck and another into a heartless, bureaucratic avenger. The director brings out the best in his actors, mastering the pace and tempo necessary to grip and keep the audience. Through its contemporary setting and believable plot, this short thriller should spark intense discussions about the state of our society and the reality we have created."

International

WINNER

Misterio: Chema García Ibarra
"This film draws you into its compelling world and shares the story of a dutiful mother, wife and neighbour who manages to fulfil her biggest dream - reaching for space and beyond. The director's attention to detail, alongside the carefully composed framing and sparse storytelling, creates an almost perfect short film with its own unique universe."

Money Back, Please: Even Hafnor
"A brilliant depiction of an error in the system, shattering the foundations of society. With simple and stripped down script and flawless implementation, this smart little movie inspires thought on a wide spectrum. A documentary approach with a hidden agenda keeps viewers and participants unbiased."
