The 17th

EuropaCinema & TV Film Festival has announced its 2000 winners. First

prize in the animation short category went to AU PREMIER DIMANCHE

D'AOUT by Florence Miailhe. The jury, composed by Francesco Tullio

Altan (Italy), Terry Inglese (Switzerland) and Georges Wolinski

(France), made the following statement about the winning film: "For

the grace and beauty of the drawings, for the refined work of

painting. For the editing and the music and also for the ability in

telling through sensual atmospheres and emotions, but most of all the

joy of living. The jury has felt as if they were experiencing and

actually taking part in the animated feast of a first Sunday in

August, highlighting also the realism of the situations, as the

fluidity of the dances." The jury gave a special mention prize to A

NOITE by Regina Pessoa. The reason being: "Motivation: the delicacy

and the intensity of the graphic choice, with the painting on plaster

boards that merge with the story narrated. Regina has managed to tell

visually and emotionally the fears at night of each one of us,

leaving the film open to various interpretations." The yearly event

was held in Viareggio, Italy from Tuesday, November 28 - Sunday,

December 3, 2000. EuropaCinema & TV highlights European film and

television projects.
