This year, and for the first time in the history of the Festival, we've held 5 o'clock professional meetings with directors to discuss their films and their topics.

During these meetings, one issue that often came up, and turned out to be essential, was the funding issue of documentary filmmaking and how a budget influences the making of a film.


Therefore, we have decided to reward three very-small-budget films with a "Special Encouragement Prize".

We felt that it was important to reward and congratulate the teams behind those films for their courage and their determination in the making of their project despite the enormous challenges they have encountered.



The teams behind Nicobar, a long way, Ultimul Caldarar and Passengers were awarded the three very special prizes as a way to congratulate them for their success and to help them with the making of their next project.
