The lion of Judah
(USA – 86’)
Directed by Johan Sturm
  • EUROPEAN PREMIERE


This animated film received the award because of the originality of the subject, the likeability of the characters that captures the audience, the simplicity and un-religiosity with which the Jewish culture in Jesus’ time and his crucifixion are described in a way that is comprehensible to all.

I segreti di Jonathan SperryBEST CHILDREN/YOUTH FILM
The secrets of Jonathan Sperry
(USA – 96’)
Directed by Rich Christiano
  • EUROPEAN PREMIERE


This film successfully indicates an alternative path that can be taken in order to learn how to defend oneself from the mediatic violence we are subject to (more than often in a passive way) that numbs our consciences.
The director Rich Christiano has faced a great challenge in his production and obtained an even greater victory: that of sowing a message of love into the future generations so that a great harvest might be reaped. .
