2011 Best Short Idea (ENG)

The 27 Competition Shorts fought for a new Audience Award this year: Best Short Idea.

The results were impressive: 24 of the 27 shorts received 50% or more a positive answer to the question “Did you at least like its main idea?” – the “at least” qualifier inserted  in order to signal that ideas matter in themselves, irrespective of what the overall film result is.

“Tous Les Hommes S’appellenet Robert”, dir. Marc-Henri Boulier, France.


Marc-Henri Boulier was notified about the news, and this is what he had to say to the Greek Audience:

“We are very happy that Robert was able to run in Greece thanks to the festival. We are proud to receive this new award. Long live the SFF-rated !”

Another example of the traditional Greece-France friendship!

Chief Festival Officer
