Dennis Gansel said about this short film while giving to it the Special Jury Award at 32th Munich International Festival of Film Schools: "We all know that, at film festivals, the movies that are the most entertaining don't usually win prizes. Making a wildly imaginative B movie genre spoof, no matter how good it is, is all too often enough to be ignored by most juries. So it is my great pleasure to honor SNAILS! by GEOFFREY COWPER with the Special Award of the Jury President. This is a highly entertaining movie with a lot of heart and hilarious ideas. Congratulations to a director with outstanding talent who we will certainly be hearing more about in the future. And since cold cash is always better than warm words I will be sending this donor-less award to Barcelona with a check for EUR1000 along with the biggest bottle of good German wine we can find."
