Short Drama
Winner : Pollicino
Director: Cristiano Anania, Italy, 2012
A person with Alzheimer’s disease is asleep on the couch. The house is a mess. The daylight filters from the windows. The need for food makes the man go out; a series of post-its to help him find his way back. The bread is bought, and the man gets ready to return home. As he comes to a crossroads, he changes direction; perhaps to an awareness of a whole new world.

Highly Commended: Capicua
Director: Roger Villaroya, Spain, 2010
When we depend on others.
