Jury motivations:
 
VICIOUS CAT
Jury: director Sam Firstenberg, BIF-market manager Romain Roll, director Roberto San Sebastián
The jury unanimosly agreed to award TUMBBAD with the Vicious Cat. We were all blown away by the story, cinematography, visual aspects and much more that such great fantastic  cinema might be delived nowadays to the world.
 
NOISY CAT
Jury: journalist Igor Vidmar, director Jérôme Vandewattyne, philologist Harald Warneke
We have chosen this movie because of its balance of message, cinematography and authenticity shows a darker side of rock’n’roll, a nihilistic attitude which turns the glamorous face of rock’n’ roll into an absurd selfdestructive freak show.
 
SLAK'S VICIOUS CAT
Jury: festival director Mikko Aromaa, director Julian Richards, director Michael Panduro
Coming from a country of no substantial genre film tradition but a lot of emerging genre filmmaking talent, the winner is an energetic and perfectly paced mix of horror and comedy with a number of edgy twists that one wouldn’t think possible to fit in a relatively short running time of less than 10 minutes.
We’re giving a special mention to that rare animated film that dares to actually be scary. An engaging and beautiful fantasy in the vein of Guillermo Del Toro that showcases amazing technical execution,  lavish visuals and awesome monsters while maintaining the overwhelming perspective of a child.
 
MELIES D'ARGENT
Jury: festival director Mikko Aromaa, director Julian Richards, director Michael Panduro
The winning film manages to subvert expectations and play around with genre in an engaging and original way, while showcasing great special effects and taking hold of a deeply human theme.
