BEST EXPERIMENTAL FILM

Butter Lamp, China / France, 2013, 15' Director: Hu Wei, Producer: Julien Feret

In a minimal set, people go in and out of frame to create a story where tradition and modernity clash against a fake background. In a click, reality and fiction are confronted with subtlety and humor to present the contradictions of modern China.

You can see the trailer here.

 

BEST ANIMATED FILM

Choir Tour, Latvia, 2012, 5' Director: Edmunds Jansons, Producer: Sabine Andersone

With geometric lines, dots, and only a few colors, the film takes us on tour with a choir of children. In a playful rhythm that blends the straight lines of the architecture and round shapes of the characters, it all comes down to a harmonious finale. For the technical achievement and its joyfulness the best animation film is awarded to Choir Tour by Edmunds Jansons.

BEST DOCUMENTARY

The Visit, Poland, 2013, 11' Director: Matej Bobrik, Producer: Ewa Jastrzebska

In an aging society the fate of our parents and grandparents is under increasing jeopardy of being neglected and forgotten once they are considered to be too old for fulfilling our standards of modern life. The Visit is a mind-touching silent outcry and unaggressive accuse of negligence towards our ancestors, presented in the form of a classical documentary film in its best form.

You can see the trailer here.

 

BEST BULGARIAN FICTION

Stereo Love, Bulgaria, 2013, 9' Director: Martin Iliev, Producer: Maria Metodieva

Stereo Love reminds us how our lives are getting more and more externally steered and dependent on mechanisms, structures, and habits of today's lifestyle. It conveys this important message to us through its convincing story and brilliant pictures in a most concentrated form, thus fulfilling all essential criteria for best short filmmaking.

You can see the trailer here.

 

BEST INTERNATIONAL FICTION

Belinda Beautiful, Denmark, 2012, 23'09'' Director: Marianne Blicher Producer: Eva Jakobsen

Belinda Beautiful transcends the dimensions of the characters' young age and transforms itself into a surprisingly universal mini-drama of emotions. A brilliantly presented story of self-discovery and the search of love. The film is a message of hope and supports faith in the power of friendship. Perfect editing, emotionally built visual concept, and acting that conquers hearts.

 

SPECIAL MENTION FOR CINEMATOGRAPHY

Newton's First Law, Italy, 2012, 19'40'' Director: Piero Messina Producer: Elisabetta Bruscolini Cinematographer: Pasquale Remia

The opening shots in this film already demonstrate knowledge and mastery of the visual tradition of Italian cinema, enriched with a personal contemporary style. The cinematographer has found a way to render a difficult and sensitive scene which in turn becomes a visual statement of the originality of the film as whole.

You can see the trailer here.

 

GRAND PRIX SILVER PRINCESS

Butter Lamp, China / France, 2013, 15' Director: Hu Wei, Producer: Julien Feret

In a minimal set, people go in and out of frame to create a story where tradition and modernity clash against a fake background. In a click, reality and fiction are confronted with subtlety and humor to present the contradictions of modern China.

IN THE PALACE 2014 LATE DEADLINE

"В ДВОРЕЦА" СЕ ЗАВЪРНА ОТ ФЕСТИВАЛА В КЛЕРМОН-ФЕРАН
2014-02-12

Кинофестивалът “В Двореца” се завърна от 36-ия Международен фестивал за късометражно кино в Клермон-Феран (Франция; 31.01 - 08.02). Фестивалът е един от най-престижните форуми за дадения формат в цял свят и често е определян като Кан на късометражното кино.

Екипът на “В Двореца” присъства на събитието за четвърта поредна година като непосредствено след пристигането си в Клермон се присъедини към Годишното общо събрание на International Short Film Conference (ISFC). В срещата, последвана от официална вечеря, взеха участие повече от 70 представители на фестивали от цял свят, сред които Palm Springs International Short Film Festival, Sao Paulo International Short Film Festival, Sapporo Short Fest Committee, Bogota Short Film Festival, Busan International Short Film Festival и много други. Част от програмата бе посветена на включването на нови членове към комисията, като българският фестивал “В Двореца” заяви желание да се присъедини към най-голямата мрежа от фестивали за късометражно кино в света.

Отличителен сегмент от фестивала в Клермон-Феран е най-мащабният в световни мащаби пазар за късометражно кино, който традиционно е място за професионална среща и обсъждане на съвместни проекти между организации, ангажирани с промоцията на кино и медии, държавни агенции, продукционни и дистрибуционни компании, мрежи, асоциации и кинофестивали, промотиращи дейността си. “В Двореца” сътрудничи с множество организации от чужбина, като в рамките на пазара проведе срещи както с вече дългогодишни партньори, така и стартира подготовката на нови международни проекти в диалог с водещи организации от Великобритания, Германия, Норвегия, Португалия, Израел и Япония.

В Клермон-Феран се състоя и годишната среща на фестивалите от мрежата Euroshort. “В Двореца” е един от учредителите на мрежата, като в рамките на 11-то си издание присъди номинацията Euroshort на филма с реж. Деян Барарев "Ботев е идиот". Филмът бе включен в специална DVD компилация, представяща номинирани млади режисьори от пет държави и бе разпространена сред всички организации, представени на 29-то издание на Маршето в Клермон. В рамките на тази година се очаква към мрежата, в която са представени България, Италия, Турция, Шотландия и Хърватия, да се присъединят и фестивали от Белгия, Латвия, Полша и Украйна. Основна цел на Euroshort е промоцията на филми на млади режисьори (до 29 г.) сред широка мрежа от фестивали, дистрибутори и байери, а също така съвместното изготвяне на каталог, представящ сто от най-успешните европейски късометражни филми за десетилетието. Следващата среща на мрежата ще се състои в рамките на 12-то издание на “В Двореца” (28.06-04.07), когато партньорите официално ще представят инициативата пред гостите на фестивала.

Други международни проекти ще бъдат осъществени в сътрудничество с фестивалите interfilm –  Berlin (Германия) и Encounters (Англия), а също с водещите фестивали за късометражно кино от трите Балтийски държави: Литва, Латвия и Естония.

Традиционно на питчинг сесията Euro Connection, провеждаща се в рамките на фестивала в Клермон (04-05.02), се представят и проекти от България, търсещи потенциални копродуценти и допълнително финансиране. Тази година бе представен игралният “Село Планински Извор” с реж. Алекс Момчев и прод. Илиан Джевелеков (Miramar Film). Сред останалите 15 проекта бе и “Foul Play” от Ирландия на Уна Киърни. За първи път проектът бе представен на питчинг сесията в Балчик през 2011 г., когато Уна спечели Златното кюлче за най-добър питч.

Сред поканените продуценти за панела на питчинг сесията бяха Ваня Райнова от компания “Портокал” и Себастиан Вейланд от “Director's Darling Development” (Германия). Ваня и Себастиан са продуценти на филма “Чест” на реж. Павел Веснаков, който в събота спечели “Grand Prix” наградата на фестивала и Номинация за Европейските филмови награди. Това е първият български режисьор, постигнал подобен успех, отнасяйки голямата награда на феста. Официалната прожекция на “Чест” в рамките на фестивала се състоя в сряда вечер (05.02), когато в голямата зала на Maison de la Culture се събраха повече от 1 400 души. Павел печели наградите за най-добър игрален филм от националния конкурс "В Двореца" две години подред - с филма си "Влакове" през 2011 г. и с "Парафиненият принц" през 2012 г. Третият му късометражен филм "Чест" е финансово подкрепен за първи път на питчинг сесията в Балчик по време на Десетото издание на фестивала. 

Огромният успех на Павел Веснаков и екипа на филма “Чест”, който в Клермон научи за селектирането му и от престижния кинофестивал в Тампере, ознаменува пореден пробив за българското късометражно кино, което за съжаление не присъства на официалната европейска кинокарта на късия метър. Надяваме се, на юбилейното 30-то издание на професионалното изложение в Клермон-Феран ще намери място и Български щанд, който да представи пред света успешни млади български автори и филми, редом със страни като Румъния, Гърция, Хърватска и Словения.

На път към България, “В Двореца” се отби през Амстердам, където се срещна с един от професионалистите, който ще журира фестивала тази година. Имената от журито и акцентите от програмата на събитието предстои да бъдат обявени.
