Grand Prix of the ANIMANIMA 2013 Festival

The Banquet of The Concubine  

Hefang Wei (France)

Explanation: We give the Golden Peg Bar to a film that impressed us greatly with it's subtle yet powerful portrayal of characters who are masterfully brought to life with an extreme economy of style that wonderfully evokes and brings to life a historically rich art form. The apparent flatness of its visuals not only complement but can barely contain the emotions that seem to want to burst from the screen. This remarkable film brings to life a period of history like no other we have seen. We proudly award the Grand Prix to The Banquet of the Concubine by Hefang Wei.

Jury Special  Award

Around the Lake

Noemie Marsily, Carl Roosens (Belgium)

Explanation: The special jury award goes to a film which captivated us with an energetic and chaotic style. Its deceptively simple animation reveals a remarkably observant eye in its two directors. The crazy, brilliant character design threatened to fall apart at any minute were it not held together by the steady rhythmic mantra of its title that gradually got funnier and scarier as it revealed more of the world and its inhabitants as they go about their business around a lake.

C & M SPECIAL AWARD – for best animated commercial or music video


Donato Sansone (Italija)

Explanation:  The C&M Award for best commercial or music video goes to a commercial whose ingenious and striking technique not only reveals the darkly fertile creative imagination of its artist, but is also a daring and refreshing change from the kind of advertising one would normally associate with this sort of client, a children's festival.
