K3 FILMPREISE 2019

K3 FEATURE-LENGTH FILM AWARD

€ 5.000.- for a theatrical release in Austria

(including € 1.000.- of payment in kind by CinePostproduction)

ROSA – Katja Colja, I/SLO 2019, 75 min.

 

Jury:
Barbara Brunner – film programmer for KIZ RoyalKino Graz
Tanja Helm – film programmer for Leokino and Cinematograph Innsbruck

„It was hard to pick a winner, we saw six very different films, we liked them all very much. ROSA shows in a very different and beautiful way the unity of death and life. We see an older couple struggling with the death of their child. Their malfunctioning relationship suffers even more after this tragedy but the story leads them in a surprising direction. Katja Colja develops the figures in their own time. There is a focus on the woman but she also shows the feelings and fears of the husband in a very loving way. We are impressed by the visualization of all the little things that cannot be told. The performance of the cast is outstanding.

Regarding a theatrical release in Austrian cinemas, we think that ROSA will be an enrichment for our audiences.”

K3 SHORT FILM AWARDS

JURY AWARD € 1500

 

SOMA – Sandra Jovanovska, Ivan Antic SLO 2019

 

Jury:
Lea Cok – Slovenian actress (i.a. CONSEQUENCES // POSLEDICE)
Lorenzo del Porto – Italian film critic
Robert Schabus – Filmmaker from Carinthia (i.a. BAUER UNSER, MIND THE GAP)

“With a brave and innovative, yet old school, approach to the narrative, the film is a real visual feast that is also able to convey a unique view on difficult topics such as drug addiction and consumerism. The combination of dark humor and disturbing images, shot with an extraordinary level of craftsmanship, evokes the works of the masters of adult animation such as Jan Svankmeyer or the Quay Brothers. Therefore, the K3 Festival Jury Award for the Best Short Film goes to SOMA.”
