FESTIVAL GRAND PRIX AWARDED BY PEOPLE'S JURY: DIE TOMORROW
DIR. NAWAPOL THAMRONGRATTANARIT, TAJLANDIA 2017
For bravely taking up a universal, yet dismissed subject of death and attempting to turn it into a natural part of human life, for a creative use of the form of film essay which corresponds to the multi-dimensionality and depth of the subject raised, and for a film contemplation which leaves the audiences with a unique, personal experience.
SPECIAL MENTION AWARDED BY PEOPLE'S JURY: GIRLS ALWAYS HAPPY
DIR. YANG MINGMING, CHINA 2018
For a provocative portrait of women at odds with life and each other, blatant and beguiling in their fight for their place in life.
Congratulations to the winners!
