Jury also made a honorable mentions:

  1. A working day in Asia
    directed by Jens Nagles
    Form, which seemingly didn’t have a documentary features, it showed a human work made from variable scenes. Absolutely free from journalistic responsibility – actuality of the topic is striking.
  2. Meeting
    directed by Margareta Petterson
    for courage and at the same time subtle message in such a tough topic – sexual harassment against women, who are looking for a job.
  3. Balast
    directed by Józef Leszek Wiśniewski
    for keeping in suspense, a vision of the world, which reminds George Orwell’s “1984”. Let’s hope it won’t be real.
