NEXSOFT AWARD

Best Film / Expert Jury

Silence 6-9 / Christos Passalis / Greece / 2022 / 81’

Best Documentary Award / Expert Jury

Children of the Mist / Diem Ha Le / Vietnam / 2021 / 90′

MOTIVATION

A documentary that tells a hard and contradictory reality, immersing oneself in a remote village in the mountains of Vietnam, between tradition and desire for emancipation, telling a humanity from within, with intimacy and vitality, and attention from every form of judgment.

Special Mention / Expert Jury

The Sower of Stars / Lois Patino / Spain / 2022 / 25′

MOTIVATION

For the ability to see beyond the visible and to have created, with the lights of Tokyo bay, a sensitive and deeply emotional story at the same time, which expands, using sound and vision, beyond time and space.

North Pole / Marija Apcevska / Macedonia / 2021 / 15’

MOTIVAZIONE

VEDOANIMATO

CAMERA DI COMMERCIO SALERNO AWARD

Best Animated Short Film / Expert Jury

Magnified City / Isaku Kaneko / Japan / 2022 / 11’34’’

MOTIVATION

To draw is to express, to speak without using words, to leave a mark, and it does not matter whether it is done on a cave wall or on a sheet of paper.
The fascination for animation cinema stems precisely from this primordial need of the human being.
Not only will the viewer follow the story of our hero, but also the emotion in each drawn line frame after frame.
Magnified City is a journey in search of beauty, not a beauty of being but of appearance, an ephemeral delusional beauty.
Throughout the film, a state of desolation and destruction prevails. Mutant figures with projector-shaped heads are intent on subjugating the protagonist only for their own personal pleasure: of bringing society back to the splendour of a world long gone – through images – in order to conceal the squalor of the world in which they now live in.
The director, Isaku Keneko, makes use of metaphors and utilises the full potential of the media to express the sadness of a post-pandemic society in which appearing is more important than being.
This is a world in which control is everything, and, like the protagonist, we too should reflect on what we want to be and what legacy we want to leave for future generations.
A touching short film, carefully crafted in all aspects, from the writing of the three acts to the artwork, the soundtrack and sound effects. All ingredients expertly balanced and mixed with rare sensitivity.
