Awards of the Ecumenical Jury

Another Sky
Directed by:

„Another Sky” is the first feature film by the Georgian director, in the best tradition of the transcendental style in film. Depicting a shepherd of Central Asian origin who goes to a big Russian city, doesn't speak Russian and is trying to find his wife and the mother of his son, the film evokes the eternal subject of sacrifice and rebirth. It is the story of a deep spiritual journey that provokes the viewer to see anew the world we live in.

Review on KinoKultura: New Russian Cinema

Operation Weed
Directed by:

The jury gives a Commendation to „Hitler in Hollywood” because it is a plea for the diversity of cultures and the need for expression of plurality, against uniformity and manipulation. The film is delivered in a brilliant, intelligent, cheerful and humorous style.
