Director: Jessica Patterson, UK, 2018, short film

FICC Jury Statement

The FICC jury awarded the Don Quijote prize to Yunshí for its ability to use a minimalistic style to convey a universal message in a highly original way. The film succeeds in making the audience identify with the non-human character through a distinctive and effective visual language. Special mention was also awarded to The Wiremen for its heartwarming story set against a backdrop of historical significance.


The FICC jury was made up of Mr. Sebastiano Caroni (Switzerland), Ms. Karoline Hovsengen (Norway) and Mr. Thomas Zechner (Ireland).
