AWARD FOR THE BEST FEATURE FILM/ 45 000 PLN
Photon
reż. Norman Leto / Polska 2017

Justification of the verdict:
A seemingly scientific explaination of human cognition turns into a subtle dissection of a troubled, flawed, possibly unreliable narrator. Film uses the conventions of „the interview,” „the voice of God,” and the character of the man-splaining scientist in an evolutionary way; weaving often dark animated imagery as both „evidence” and „fantasy”, where the borders of these binaries shift, collide and an ultimately reveal a bold and original film unlike any we’ve seen before.

SPECIAL AWARD OF THE RECTOR OF THE UNIVERSITY OF ARTS IN POZNAŃ FOR THE BEST STUDENT FILM
Love Me, Fear Me
