Golden Slipper - for Best Feature Film for Children
THE WORLD OF US (KOR, 2016) directed by YOON Ga-eun
The jury was moved by this pure movie. The artistic choices were supporting the story in a very subtile and homogene way. The film is giving perspective how to overcome obstacles and how to deal with difficulties in friendship.
Golden Slipper - for Best Feature Film for Youth
KEEPER (BEL, SUI, FRA, 2015) directed by Guillaume Senez
We feel that the films´message is „Sur-la-vie“ (topical). The film very much speaks to the experience i tis wel-acted, wel shot, and the point of view is honest and sincere. The director presents the changing responsibilities, realities and situation that resonate with youth from their own stand point.
Golden Slipper - for Best Animated Film
THE ORCHESTRA (AUS, 2015) directed by Mikey Hill
A gentle, consistently inventive and emotionally affecting film, using a persuasive visual and musical metaphhor. Well observed, amusing and touching throughout the duration of its romantic narrative.
Children’s Jury Main Prize - for Best Feature Film for Children
ABULELE (ISR, 2015) directed by Jonathan Geva
We chose the movie because we like the story. We think it´s a good mixture of funny, seriously, friendly and a bit sad. The actors were really good and the costume looks very real. There were good computer and camera animations. It´s very funny to watch the movie and everybody wants to continue the story in a next movie.
Youth Jury Main Prize- for Best Feature film for Youth
THE PITCH (RUS, 2015) directed by Eduard Bordukov
It was not easy to make up our mind because we have seen a lot of different movies at this festival. The member of the youth jury didn´t have the same favourites until we watched The Pitch. The story pulled us into the action and we felt like we stood beside the main characters. For all of us it was really breathtaking moment.

We give a main prize to debut film Rag Union. It is film what deals with political and social issues of young people in Russia today with freshness and originalism. We appreciate wild and risky director´s approach and its extraordinary humour.
