Kinodot short film competition 2015

The results of the 3d Kinodot competition

The Audience Award goes to ‘The Milkman’ directed by Joe Bor & Daniel Berg, produced by Howard Cohen, United Kingdom.

The Special Jury Mention goes to ‘Serori' by Pedro Collantes, Netherlands. For creating a crisp and funny story - challenging, but rewarding in its simplicity - which makes the viewer both fascinated and uncomfortable; echoing in the consciousness long after being seen.

The Special Jury Mention goes to ‘Cutaway' by Kazik Radwanski, Canada. For its striking, sensitive and very tactile insight into real life experience; seen from a very different, subjective and simple, point of view. 

The Jury Prize goes to ‘Absent Minded’ by Roberto Catani, Italy. For a rich and skillful realisation of a genuine sense of daydreaming, the atmosphere of melancholia, mystery and magic, and for evoking a lovely sense of child-like play. 

The winners of the Audience Award and the Jury Prize received $500 each from our partner Smart Media Systems.

We would like to thank our international jury members: Michael Bates, Yann Chapotel, Zbigniew Czapla, Olivier Dekegel, Niclas Gillberg and all the filmmakers-participants: Pedro CollantesKazik RadwanskiRoberto CataniShawn BannonJean-Marc E.RoyChristine HooperAlexei DmitrievGaston Igounet, Matti Ilmari Lehtinen, Joe Bor & Daniel Berg.
