SHORT FILM COMPETITION 2012 - WINNER
MUYBRIDGE'S STRING – Directed by Yamamura Koji
Jury's comment: Juries would like to praise the high ambition of MUYBRIDGE'S STRING which tries to go beyond a mere portrait of Edward Muybridge who played one of the most important role in the birth of cinema. It investigates the secret of the human perception of time and the magic of cinema itself.
EVERYONE SAYS I LOVE YOU – Directed by Cécile Ducrocq
The jury were very impressed with the French film, EVERYONE SAYS I LOVE YOU, for its simple premise, naturalistic dialogue & composed direction. We believe this is a new talent to watch.

ACID – Directed by Lam Suk-ching
Juries enjoyed the joyful energy which the film contains and also were impressed by the filmmaker's attempt to create some kind of original slapstick comedy with a comment on society.
