This film is a total, organic audio-visual experience.
director Soetkin Verstegen
My Special Mention goes to this touching confessional tale about the recognition of two souls.
UNCLE THOMAS, ACCOUNTING FOR THE DAYS
director Regina Pessoa
My Special Mention goes to “Arka” and Natko for his film that uses skillful direction to take us on a monumental journey and reveals the dejection and the escapist tendencies of society today.
director Natko Stipaničev
My special mention goes to this film because it captures the tension between generations, passing, forgetting, with great irony and excellent “casting”.
directors Kasper Jancis
A small master-piece that leaves you breathless at every level.
director Daria Kashcheeva
My Special Mention goes to this film because it pulls us into the femal subconscious, skillfully combining enchanting visuals that successfully live three parallel lives within the film.
director Flóra Anna Buda
My Special Mention goes to this film because its every gesture reveals a dynamic that hides in monotony, and the discrepancy between wishes and reality, wrapped in minimalistic visuals that win you over instantly.
director Matisse Gonzalez
This film is about loneliness, with clever scenography, which holds the viewer’s attention until the very end of the film. Its minimalistic graphic design and its unique, catchy voice acting makes the whole film outstanding.
A ROOM WITH A SEA VIEW
director Leonid Shmelkov
The 7 Kids is a reworking of the fairytale of “The Wolf and the Seven Young Goats”, told in a refreshing new way. We liked it the most because the animation was great, it was funny, original and visually arresting.
THE 7 KIDS
director Marina Karpova
From the big and amazing selection of music video shown at this year’s Supertoon festival that cover almost the whole spectrum of animation techniques, styles, sensibilities and authorial conceptions, this film stood out to us primarily because it greatly succeeded in following and visualising the energetic, rhythmic, rough and somewhat wild dance music through a surprisingly rich and varied range of inspired, funny and bizarre gags and slowly pulling the viewer into a hypnotic, euphoric state of harmony with the music.
director Cheng-Hsu Chung
This film took us on an isometric safari through wondrous wallpapers and patterns made of moving graphic microcosms and molecules. The film is a visual treat and encapsulates the spirit of the song it is illustrating in a brilliant way; perhaps a tiny bit hermetic, but it’s guaranteed to be a favourite of every lover of the more experimental approach to form and narration in animation.
director Alice Saey
This film uses the set format of an animation festival trailer with precision and efficacy, employing humor and references to Japanese animation and its widely known themes, to articulate and speedily deliver both serious and funny commentary on the wider global, apocalyptic context of the world and the culture today – and consequently the position of animation in all of this.
