WINNER VERTICAL MOVIE 2020
WINNING WORKS OF THE THIRD EDITION OF THE VERTICLAMOVIE FESTIVAL 2020
- VERTICAL MOVIE AWARD: Sachiko by Miguel Esteve
The power of writing and imagination: writing creates, writing destroys. The exhibition of the contrasts and / or inconsistencies of Japan: the calm time of the temples alternates with the time of the city. The images are sharp. The passion for dance corresponds to the passion for beauty. Both represent a vocation.
- VERTICAL OPEN AWARD: Passed the brush by Leif Gantvoort
For the intuition of reviewing, at a grazing flight, the trends of the moment present in social networks and through their language to propose them again in a short film story. Parallel space-time planes, irony and rhythm, to suggest to grab the “make-up brushes” and the possibilities of transformation that life throws at us.
- VERTICAL WOMAN AWARD: Bonne nuit by Dominique Maury Lasmartres
Not for everyone the night draws a bonne nuit, but for some it can become one thanks to the generosity of others. Work made with sensitivity and excellent cinematic narrative.
- VERTICAL SONG AWARD: Cantaclaro by Vadim Lasca
For being able to represent the decadence of values with a dark and dystopian setting, filmed with extraordinary skill via a dated mobile device and having obtained a strictly vertical photograph, well lit, with the complicity of excellent costumes and an appreciable piece of music.
- VERTICAL DOC AWARD: Khayelitsha by Leila Kidson and Michael Carter
The desertification of the external landscape contrasts with the great inner wealth. The individual is not the place where he lives. The individual is in the depth he inhabits. The worst desertification lies in carelessness. Excellently photographed work.
- VERTICAL WEB AWARD: Isolation by Melania M. Codella (section dedicated to the work that reaches the highest number of views) 6531 views.
An island, a family, a positive. Family life is about to be upset by the result of a swab. Between hypochondria, anxiety and acceptance of reality, the mirror of the nature of the human being emerges. Let the isolation begin. An ironic and fun way to represent a truth that has shocked many people. Be positive.
