AND THE WINNERS ARE...
After a very difficult decision that took the jury until the last day of the festival, we have the winners. The Grand Prix went to "Bluetooth connected" by Julián Escandarani, a film that also received the award for Best Argentine Film, Best Screenplay, Best Editing and Best Sound Design.
In the international competition, Ross McClure's "Close up and personal" (UK) stood out, which also won for best direction and second place in best editing.
And in the audience vote, the winner was "Yendo".
See the complete list of winners.
TODAY... THE WINNERS
After a week full of competition and art, tonight the winners will start to fly. This evening you can watch the award ceremony live at our youtube channel. Stay tuned.
YOU CAN'T MISS THIS MOVIE
Today we'd like you to watch "Chasing Swipes" by Namo Safideen, from Sweden. Is one of the highlighted out of competition movies. "In an attempt to get over her ex-boyfriend, Vera starts using a dating app for the first time and tries to find herself in this newly discovered world."
Because not everything is about 7 seconds, today we'd like to recommend you two longer movies that will kick your asses. Both about social media and our relationship with mobile phones. "Influencers anonymous" by Ross McClure (UK) and "Deleve" by Roma Glova (Russian Federation). Watch them free, just for this week.
