Winner 2019
16°Edition
BEST FILM ALLAHU AKBAR | ALLAH IS GREAT Directed by Farhat Qazi & Farhan Alam | Pakistan 2019 For the ability with which she tells us about the strength of women who do not bow to the destiny chosen for them by the prevailing culture, but fight for their daughters and for themselves, to affirm the right to education, the freedom to choose if and who to marry, to experience childhood and adolescence as, everywhere, every young woman has the right to choose. The certainty is that "whoever is afraid dies every day and whoever is not afraid dies only once" and survives forever.
BEST DOCUMENTARy DANCE OF LIFE Directed by Peyman Zandi | Iran  2019 For the ability to demonstrate that the great beauty of our planet overwhelms the political upheavals and the prevarications of man, imposing itself despite frequent havoc and transforming the landscapes brutalized by violence, sloth and forgetfulness, to give man his paradise.
BEST ACTOR LAU'RIE ROACH for the film "THE WORLD ALONE" Directed by Jordan Noel | USA  2018 For the way in which disability, in the role of the leading actor, is not only masterful but emblematic of what in today's society, but not only, being lame, carrying a non-trendy skin color and serving the chrism of the sin of one's adulterous mother could seek, in the escape, the only possible solution and discovers that we can all make mistakes but everyone can be granted a new opportunity in the life that we really want.
BEST ACTRESS FARIBA TALEBI for the Film "HE WENT" Directed by Mehdi Esmaeili | Iran  2019 For the ability of mimicry that makes non-verbal language an unequivocal and excellent tool and that indicates how art can challenge any prison, allowing us to fly high but stay with our feet on the ground.
BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY Ruben Gasparyan  for the Film "MOUNTAINS, THE SUN AND LOVE" Directed by Michael Poghosyanl | Armenia  2019 For the ability to show us how the image, by returning to man his paradise of nature, is capable of healing the wounds of the heart and sowing life by erasing every nightmare from the past.
BEST SOUNDTRACK Jackson Milas & Antony Partos for the film "CELESTE" Directed by Ben Hackworth  | Australia  2019 Because even illness and death, in this way of conceiving the inevitable and necessary consonances, become an opportunity to come to terms with one's own truth and make peace with one's fear, with the censorships and silences that often ensue and choose to approach the obligatory passage for everyone with as much dignity as possible, having the grace of being listened to by those you love and finding in the sounds of nature the ideal lullaby for the longest dream.
BEST INTERNATIONAL SHORT ANACRONTE  Directed by Raúl Koler  |  Argentina  2019 For the ability with which it takes us into a dream that is not only the chromatic and technical one but which embodies hope. In fact, everyone is saved by reacting to the darts of life fired by fate in different ways. Some succumb, landed by unexpected events or pains, while others choose to make their dreams come true by transforming difficulties into a resource and to give life and the future a new opportunity.
BEST SHORT WOMEN IN CINEMA LIGHTING  Directed by Cristina Isoli |  UK  2018 For the ability with which it demonstrates how women use not only their hearing to communicate. But they are conductors of vibrations especially when love touches their heart. Because the music, which the ears cannot hear, vibrates beyond the eardrum and, through the circuits of inventive initiative of a man in love, reaches directly to the heart muscle.
BEST MUSIC VIDEO THE THINGS WERE BETTER BIFORE  Directed by Lu Pulici |  Italy  2018 For the ability to demonstrate how myths, fairy tales and cunti are the ideal terrain, not only for children, but also for the child inside us. They are able, thanks to a specific technical mastery, to tell dense and touching stories, deserving not only the applause but also the support.
