Comment from the Jury:
SPECIAL MENTION AWARD
”A perfect example of how “big” a “small” can be. The director’s talent shines and portrays multi-national issues, social problems, domestic conflict, friendship and other intricate dilemmas within simple drama. The script, acting and directing are all well composed.”

Rainer Werner Fassbinder-Preis:
”The Rainer-Werner-Fassbinder Prize goes to ”MISS KICKI” by Håkon Liu from Sweden, as it shows us in an exemplary manner, how an actress shapes a film. In ever surprising ways it shows us that cinema does not need many words to express the unsaid and inexpressible in human relationships.”

The Telia Film Award goes to Miss Kicki by Håkon Liu.
