      By: Kantemir Balagov

      Jury statement:
      ...for its ability to immerse us in a historical period, the Leningrad winter of 1945/46, while having complete control of contemporary film language. The film's theme, its characters, its subtle psychology as well as its narrative and visual strategies all speak to the audiences of today.

      Kingfisher Award – Special Mention 1
      By: Markus Schleinzer

      Jury statement:
      ...for shaping the biography of a historical character and avoiding all conventional approaches to this genre with a unique and daring directorial vision of the age of enlightenment. 

      Kingfisher Award – Special Mention 2
      By: Jan-Ole Gerster

      Jury statement:
      …for the precise screenplay by Blaž Kutin. He constructs and analyses an unsympathetic character, stays true to her, but still makes us view her very differently by the end.
