VIEW Award 2020 Winners
VIEW Award 2020
“Migrants”, an 8 minute 17 second film by fifth-year students Zoé Devise, Lucas Lermytte, Hugo Caby, Aubin Kubiak, and Antoine Dupriez of POLE 3D in Roubaix, France sends two polar bears driven into exile due to global warming on a quest for a new home. Unfortunately, the immigrants’ ice floe docks at a territory ruled by proprietary brown bears. The Jurors noted the relevance of the strong, story-driven film’s metaphors of climate change and immigration treated in an emotional, deep, and unique way. The crafty textures of the knitted polar bears and fuzzy brown bears contributed to a beautiful overall look. The nine-member international jury unanimously gave this unique, gorgeous film the top prize of 2000 Euros.
“Latitude du Printemps” is a 7 minute 34 second film by Sylvain Cuvillier, Chloé Bourdic, Théophile Coursimault, Noémie Halberstam, Maŷlis Mosny, and Zijing Ye, recent recipients of Masters degrees from the Rubika School in Valenciennes, France. In this unpredictable film, a dog, abandoned at the side of the road and attached to a streetlight, meets a young astronaut wannabe and a professional cyclist trying to beat her highest score. The jury loved the innovative storytelling, refreshing animation, and especially that it was so much fun to watch and gave this film the 500 Euro VIEW 2020 Jury Award.
In “Trésor,” a 7 minute film directed by Alexandre Manzanares, two sea-going, treasure-hunting explorers disturb a romance between an octopus and his beloved. The jury praised the clever animation in the parallel storylines, and gave this film a 200 Euro VIEW 2020 Honorable Mention.
“The Dead Hands of Dublin” directed by Leo Crowley, a pair of enchanted gloves transform a failed pianist into a maestro. But, fate deals the pianist a cruel hand.
