Vertical Movie Award

New Normal

by Chul Heo

“For having illustrated a hypothetical and not too unlikely future society destined for extinction, and having done so with originality and poetry, in this short vertical film that is both intense, engaging and also full of trust in man”.

Vertical Green Award

Falling Down

by Swann Chesnel and Yoann Chesnel

“For having summarized in a few minutes the environmental disaster wrought daily by the civilization of consumption, and having done it with a wealth of images (“vertical”) and great editing skills, so as to amaze, excite and make the viewer palpitate for the destinies of our mistreated Land.”

Vertical Open Award

Chase !!

by Hiroki Kawanami e Tommaso Barbetta.

“For having told with irony and lightness a situation of ordinary daily life, leading us into a “vertical” dimension full of narrative ideas and overturning of space-time planes, which while referring to a virtual dimension remain firmly anchored to reality. The circularity of the narrative, which starts again exactly where we left off, underlines the contradictions and failures of our contemporary society.”

Vertical Song Award

Captcha Cha

by Marco Borrelli

For having treated with irony the theme, which has now entered the collective imagination, of the fear of a near future governed by machines equipped with artificial intelligence, which are even able to procreate a human being, who will be forced to reaffirm his own humanity. “

Special Mention

My safe place

by Ambra Quaranta

“For having accompanied us with skill and depth in the maze of an issue as uncomfortable as it is current as that of femicide. For having done it with such dedication as to take care of all aspects, from the script to the editing, passing through the direction and, above all, the laudable interpretation. “
