Guillaume Blanchet (Guillaume Blanchet)
During the festival we watched four Elephant in competition projections. Every time after the projection we discussed about the films and chose the winner of the day. We were choosing between Prince Kikido and one hudred unhappy mushrooms, Snapshot, Kiosk and A Girl named Elastica. The choice was extremly difficult, because we liked all of them. The most difficult decision was between Kiosk and Elastika .. and in the end we got a winner - it's A girl named Elastika.
Besides the awards, there are are also the special mentions. This year the Elephant jury had one as well!
