I’m very satisfied to announce that Saturday was the final night of an extraordinary edition of Ascona Film Festival. On all three evenings, our audience filled up every available seat in the house. During these three magical evenings at Hotel Ascona, we were yet again able to share many short international masterpieces, culminating in the screening of the Oscar winning short film “The Phone Call”. The winners of the international competition public prizes are: 1st place goes to “Destino” by Zangro, France. 2nd place goes to “Parvaneh” by Talkhon Hamzavi, Switzerland. 3rd place goes to “Sinceridad” by Andrea Casaseca, Spain. This year, for the first time, a special jury prize was awarded to “Parvaneh” by Talkhon Hamzavi, Switzerland, with special mentions going to the 2nd placed “More Than Two Hours” by Ali Asgari, Iran and 3rd placed “Le Temps d’un Tango” by Frédéric Hontschoote, France. We invite everyone to our 5th edition, which will take place from February 25th through 27th, 2016.

Best wishes Julian Martin

 

Am Samstag abend ist die 4. Veranstaltung des Ascona Film Festivals mit der Preisverleihung zu Ende gegangen. An allen drei Abenden war der Saal voll besetzt. Auch dieses Jahr konnten wir viele kurze, internationale Meisterwerke, während drei bezaubernden Abenden, mit unserem Publikum im Hotel Ascona teilen. Als grosses Finale wurde der Oscar gekrönte Kurzfilm “The Phone Call” gezeigt. Die Publikumspreise gingen an die folgenden Kurzfilme: 1. Preis an “Destino” von Zangro, Frankreich. 2. Preis an “Parvaneh” von Talkhon Hamzavi, Schweiz. 3. Preis an “Sinceridad” von Andrea Casaseca, Spanien. Dieses Jahr wurde zum ersten Mal ein spezieller Jury-Preis an “Parvaneh” von Talkhon Hamzavi verliehen, der sich vor “More Than Two Hours” von Ali Asgari, Iran und “Le Temps d’un Tango” von Frédéric Hontschoote, Frankreich, durchsetzen konnte. Wir laden alle zu unserer 5. Jubiläumsausgabe ein, die nächstes Jahr vom 25. bis 27. Februar stattfinden wird.

Herzliche Grüsse Julian Martin
