A sixpack of awards at BAA and a Local Artist Award at Crossing Europe
We are very happy that at the Best Austrian Animation Festival in Vienna, organized by ASIFA, several awards were handed out to works from the sixpackfilm program:
The main prize (ex aequo) went to Leopold Maurer for Crisis, "best narrative work" was There is exactly enough time by Oskar Salomonowitz & Virgil Widrich, "best experimental work" Warten by Bernd Oppl and the award for "best analog / hybrid technique" went to On the Bottom of the laundrybag by Adele Razkövi. Anna Vasof and Veronika Schubert both received audience awards for Amazon Woman and for Mindset respectively.
Meanwhile at Crossing Europe Filmfestival Linz Jola Wieczorek got the CROSSING EUROPE Award - Local Artist for her stunning feature length documentary Stories from The Sea (photo: © a_kep // subtext.at).
