The jury stated that  it weaves a personal story with religious ritual and how the voice-over connects the two worlds. Because the animation matches the reduced and original drawing style, and for the way this style complements the voice-over, allowing us to enter the characters' world.

JURY SPECIAL MENTIONS:

Akinori Oishi: The Tiniest (Tomislav Šoban): "The film is unique in combining a story with documentary radio narration in an interesting way. The little mystery about "his friend" sparks the viewers' imaginations and draws the audience into its own universe".

 

 

John Canciani: Beauty (Rino Stefano Tagliafierro): This stunning travel through Art History, transforming from innocent desire into the dark side of humanity makes this film a unique and original art piece.

 

Andreas Hykade: Timber (Nils Hedinger): For the skill of being a funny cartoon movie and still getting selected for Animateka,

 

Cecilia Translavina: Fugue for cello, trumpet and landscape (Jerzy Kucia): The film achieves new levels of poetic expression in animation through its unique and sophisticated relationship between moving image and sound.

 

Tess Martin: A Blue Room (Tomasz Siwinski):  This film depicts a strange, unnerving and surreal environment that convinces us we are in a dream, or a nightmare.

 

Animateka festival renews its festival animation date from 7 to 13 December 2015.
