BEST SHORT FILM
for children aged 3-5 – Technical Jury
Lost & Found by Andrew Goldsmith, Bradley SlabeL

Reason: For having staged, through a very refined use of stop-motion animation, a delicate and involving story capable of fascinating both children and adults. These simple rag dolls manage to move the public and talk to us about altruism, sacrifice, and perseverance.

BEST SHORT FILM
for children aged 6-10 – Technical Jury
Migrants by Hugo Caby, Antoine Dupriez, Aubin Kubiak, Lucas Lermytte, Zoé Devise

Reason: For having represented our present through a tough and touching story that retraces the heroism, fears, selfishness, and rejections of migrations. A powerful and direct story that speaks to both adults and children, with a tragic ending linked to our dramatic reality, capable of animating the reasons and experiences of those who flee to a foreign land, thus reversing the usual stereotypes of contemporary society.

BEST SHORT FILM
for kids aged 11-14 – Technical Jury
U Scantu by Daniele Suraci

Reason: Because love isn’t and must not be a disease. This is not a film about fear, but about horizons. It is an invitation to fresh water. A whistle, a kiss. A reaction to those brambles and rocks that inhabit the mental planets of each of us, children and adults. Brambles that exist but we don’t want to see. Rocks from which we do not want to jump. The film tells you about them through the eyes of a child. Glimpses that talk of longing and heavy breathing. In search of a guide, of a Father. Of an embrace that is no longer there: “whatever, he is a little boy and he’ll forget about it”. But it doesn’t work like that: recognizing the pain is the first step to start smiling and not being afraid anymore.

CSV AWARD
Coordinamento Solidarietà Valle d’Aosta
Kiwi’s Dream by Paloma Zhu

Reason: For having demonstrated that “together we can” achieve something that seemed impossible: “making fly those who thought they could not”. For the simple and direct message that reflects the solidarity and cooperation that characterizes the world of volunteering.
