Awards for 2017

New Vision Award


Life Imitation: Zhou Chen
"Without spectacle and with deep ambivalence, the film creates an intimate portrait of the performance of the self in a hypermediated world, calmly casting an insistent gaze on shifting experiences of sociality, gender, and technology."

New Vision Award - Honorable Mention


The Lost Dreams of Naoki Hayakawa: Ane Hjort Guttu, Daisuke Kosugi
The jury praises this "unique collaboration that explores the place of the personal within an immediately recognizable global context in which even our dreams are for sale. Grounded by an exceptional central performance, this film is at once formally precise and playfully surrealist."

F:ACT Award


Radio Kobanî: Reber Dosky
"We have chosen a beautifully crafted film - a film about life and death, war and peace, the loss of hope in humanity and the regaining of that hope. The film is a fiercely intimate piece as well as a rigorously researched piece of citizen journalism."


F:ACT Award - Honorable Mention


Trophy: Christina Clusiau, Shaul Schwarz
"In terms of the craft of filmmaking, the cinematography, the editing and the sound design of this film is a great achievement."

Nordic Dox Award - Honorable Mention


69 Minutes of 86 Days: Egil Haaskjold Larsen
"The incredible cinematography, immaculate editing, creative sound design and music all melt into a haunting experience. Its rhythm also imitates that of a dangerous sea which is the starting point of a journey mainly focusing on Lean, an unforgettable three year old girl. She embodies both hope and courage in a time when it is most needed."

Nordic Dox Award


Land of the Free: Camilla Magid
The jury "was deeply moved by a film that takes us into the depths of human vulnerability. Its well-chosen and poignant stories forcefully mirror each other. The film achieves an incredible intimacy with its protagonists and stays true to its cinematic choices."



1996 Lucy and the Corpses in the Pool: Nahuel Lahora, Marcos Migliavacca
The jury calls it "a playful film that combines different layers of recent history while challenging our assumptions of time/space, memory and nostalgia."
