Best short animation
Winners Grand Prix shorts - non-narrative

Lei Lei and Thomas Sauvin won the Grand Prix shorts in the category non-narrative with Recycled. Both have been invited to put together a programme for HAFF 2014.

From the jury report:
A film that unifies concept, technique and sound to create an almost epic portrait of anonymous humanity.

About Recycled (CN, 2012):
Some three thousand colour negatives found at Beijing rubbish dumps together show, at lightning speed, the city, its inhabitants and its transience.

From the jury report:
A film which greatly impressed us with its seamless and elegant direction creating a powerful yet delicately understated setting.

About Palmipedarium (FR, 2012):
A country boy knows ducks quite well. They fly, swim and make noise. One day, he finds a remarkable bird.

From the jury report:
The winning movie succeeds in evoking emotion with recognizable and everyday subjects.

Best European student film
Winner Grand Prix European student films

Jonas Ott received the Grand Prix European studenten films for his film Washed Ashore.

We were impressed by the film’s depth and surprising turns, its intensity, and its vaudeville perversity.

A drowning person washes ashore on the beach of a big city. Out of curiosity, he starts exploring. But the people he meets are strange and superficial.
