About Void Between us and Luka Gribnau, the jury had this to say: ‘The inventiveness of the director in enhancing the poetic atmosphere and for moving the audience was more than successful.’ On Joris Tobé and his Verwoede Pogingen: ‘A director who manages to instruct his actors with a steady hand in a subtle and perfectly timed comedy about a current topic that is easily ridiculed, yet never descends into a farce.’
WildcardsIn addition to the student competition awards, the Film Fonds awarded their wildcards, in support of recently graduated film producers. Each wildcard offers a sum of 50,000 euros to help realise a new documentary, fiction film or animation.
Both wildcards for Animation went to HKU alumni: Quita Felix and Mahmood Shakuri. Jikkie Schelling received a wildcard in the Fiction category.
Interested in these award-winning productions and other graduation films? On 10 and 11 October, at Blikvangers Festival in the Louis Hartlooper Complex, you can admire all the great films and animations by HKU graduates.
