Maule Dhan Rai is the last man in the remote Nepal village of Saadi who's been visited in a dream by a wrathful forest spirit called Rongkemi. If no one else in the village has the dream, a generations-old tradition of honey gathering may die.

“You know you've seen a great film when you come away captivated, moved, but also having learned something. We liked this film because we were quickly immersed in a remote community where tradition and reality collide. Reality being the most basic of needs - everybody needs a job. Beautiful images, and harem scarem sequences that required extensive mountain filmmaking skill and determination to capture - this is a visceral film that subtly and without judgement asks so many questions.”

— Keme Nzerem, jury member.

“There was one short film all the jury loved. I personally think that this is close to a perfect film.

3 National Geographic “Adventurers of the Year “ embark on a remarkable kayaking mission in Greenland. Kite skiing over 1000 kilometres of the Greenland Ice Cap, they tow their white water kayaks to reach the most northern river ever paddled.

“With its spectacular cinematography and absorbing portrayal of an incredibly arduous and bold expedition, this film takes us far out of our comfort zone. Amazing photography in remote wilderness, and it’s probably fair to say, a large amount of suffering and human endeavor, with high performance paddling to boot.”

— Katie Moore, jury member.

Imagination Tom Wallisch 04 credit Jake Dyson

Have you ever been that little kid sitting in the back seat of your parents car, wishing you were somewhere else? So you imagine a skier on the side of the road, your fingers commanding back flips and roof drops, improbable rail slides and huge airs. Well what if your imagination came to life?

 

For fanatics of winter sports, the first snow and turns of the winter always bring huge smiles to our faces, and have us giggling like little kids. This film can’t fail to make you smile. With very clever storytelling, hugely complex production and careful consideration of every small detail, it takes us into a world most of us have forgotten. A place where anything is possible, and the only limits are the limits of our mind.

— Katie Moore, jury member.
