ReAnima Winners 2nd edition

Congratulations to all the winners.

 

GRAND PRIX

Fall

La Chute / The Fall, Boris Labbé 14:22” France, 2018.

“The Garden of Earthly Delights” 500 years later, or an insight into the mind of an artist seeking the right shape for the idea. The repetitive style of Boris Labbé found here is a perfect form of expression, consistently building – with the perfect symbiosis of images and music – an almost pathos-inducing picture of creation and fall.

BEST PROFESSIONAL

III

III, Marta Pajek 12′ Poland, 2018.

The third part of the “triptych about the femininity” by Marta Pajek is a kind of dissection of the relationship between a woman and a man; a complicated, sometimes terrifying, but of a fascinating complexity. Characteristic for the author, minimalist and elegant, but at the same time an extremely sensual line of traditional drawing animation, which builds, with an almost surgical precision, a sterile space for reflection.

BEST MUSIC VIDEO

hum

Violet Hum, Tribambuka (Anastasia Beltyukova) 5’15” UK, 2018.

A good video clip is one in which music and image exist on equal terms, complementing and inspiring each other, like yin and yang. This is what “Violet Hum” is.

BEST EXPERIMENTAL

fest

Fest, Nikita Diakur 2’55” Germany, 2018.

Nikita Diakur consistently pushes the boundaries of 3D animation, exploring previously unknown areas and giving the space to think about animation in general. The introduction of traditional analog methods into the digital world makes Nikita and his works a real pioneering and experimental experience in contemporary animation.

BEST STUDENT

little

My Little Goat, Tomoki Misato 10’13” Japan, 2017.

Tomoki Misato manages to convey a dark theme employing a contrast between whimsical characters and a gritty backdrop. The film is framed within well known fairytale archetypes which blends seamlessly with a nod towards traditional anime battles. ’My Little Goat’ manages to create its own unique universe which balances daringly between childish entertainment and thought provoking storytelling.

BEST SCANDINAVIAN

nothing

Nothing Happens, Uri & Michelle Kranot 11′ 50” Denmark & France, 2017.

With a quiet elegance Uri & Michelle Kranot moves the viewer to reflect while a crowd silently gather. The pacing and limited colour palette perfectly match the sombre action. The space left on both sides of the climactic gunshot serve to enforce the drama. While the crowd slowly disperse we are made to face the apathy and inaction of group mentality.

A masterfully crafted and grim tableau of our time.

JURY SPECIAL MENTION

 

bloiestraat

Bloiestraat 11, Nienke Deutz

9’41” Belgium-Netherlands, 2018.

The “vanilla” colours and strolling pace of Nienke Deutz film, skilfully tells the story of childhood best friends slowly growing apart.

brilliant

Briljantsuse demonstratsioon neljas vaatuses / A Demonstration of Brilliance in Four Acts

Morten Tšinakov, Lucija Mrzljak 15’03” Estonia, 2018.

A Demonstration of Brilliance of Estonian Animation in One Short Movie. Morten Tšinakov and Lucija Mrzljak have created a wonderfully weird universe, with a chaos theory approach to its storytelling. We get to watch gleefully as its carefully constructed world falls apart and devolves into chaos.

Alfred & Skyggen – en liten film om selvkritikk

ReAnima sumary 2017

ReAnima was made with practically 0.00,00 resources. This incredible project was conceived with a great idea, ambition and lot of passion. We received over 300 films all around the world for our competition and chose 100 out of them. Thanks to the outstanding quality of the material received, the competition was really high. In our first edition we had two winners in almost each category because the extraordinary level of the films astonished the jury. We were honoured to have special programs from international festivals and animation networks as Visegrad New Talents, Stoptrik Festival. A very special program with Mexican animated legends in languages almost extinct. We enjoyed the best of the German contemporary animation. In addition this first edition we had a special opportunity to bring together 3 feature films from great directors: The boy and the world by Alê Abreu, ‎Dyrene i Hakkebakkeskogen by Rasmus A. Sivertsen and The Red Turtle by Michaël Dudok de Wit. In totally more than 145 films screened in 3 days. Well, that is something to start.

Continuing with the suprises in our debut, was amazing to host a bunch of brave animators that decided to visit us in our first edition. Maja Minic, Joann Guyonnet, Agnieszka Fatyga, Ching-Yu Yang, Gillaume Morox and Szymon Halaszuk , were the artists  that gave a great plus to our first edition. In this line we want give a special thanks to our jury members; Olga and Michal Bobrowski from Stoptrik Festival and Katarszyna Surmacz from Etiuda&Anima Festival.

The selection films in our 2017 edition was made and designed in the lines of our statment, that means we screened films with social compromises, ecological, politic and artistic innovations. Always trying to put on the table of the social problems, promoting a more open and inclusive society.

But the most important finding was that we discovered  a hungry audience looking for animated art of quality that also given us words of encouragement to keep building ReAnima. To all of you: Thank you so much and lets move to the ReAnima 2018 edition!

 

 

 

 

 

ReAnima edition 2017

The International Animated Film Festival ReAnima is very happy to announce all the winners of this first edition. 
Thanks to all the animators that sent their amazing films. We made an incredible program of high artistic quality. Also we want to thank our festival partners and all the people that helped us to make this first edition a real success. As the quality of the films was astonishing, the jury found hard to decide only one winner. 
In ReAnima we truly believe that this first edition deserves more that one winner per category becuase of the quality of the competing works. Congratulations to all the winners and the special mentioned short films. We hope to see you next year in our ReLoaded second edition with the best of international animation in Bergen. Tusen Takk!
