The jury praised the film for following no rules and imposing no limits on itself, boldly going forward with humour, intelligence and ease.

bagged The Bravest Film Award, which is given to the best film in the Brave Balkans selection. “With its sparse dialogue, Edi Ćelić’s role and its direction, which is remarkable in its use of space, the film effortlessly conveys the state of affairs and the atmosphere to viewers, inviting them to experience the images both directly and intuitively, while also leaving enough stimulation for interpretation,” stated the jury (Ivan Bakrač, Jovan Marković and Daniela Schier) in their explanation. A Special Mention in the same category went to Tara Gajović’s short film In Shoulders.

The Prof Vlada Petrić Award for the Most Cinematic Sequence, in honour of Slavko Vorkapić, was shared by Thomas Salvador’s The Mountain [+lire aussi :
