Jury Awards
Grand Prix Anima 2010
DIVERS IN THE RAIN by Olga Parn and Priit Parn, Estonia
DIVERS IN THE RAIN

The jury unanimously awards Best Short film to Divers in the Rain in respect of the unique qualities of the script – which takes many surprising and humorous directions. And also the poetic quality of the design and animation which together combine to tell a surreal and truly memorable story.

Special mentions:

LOST AND FOUND by Philip Hunt, UK
and
MEI LING by Stéphanie Lansaque and François Leroy, France

ORSOLYA by Bella Szederkenyi, Hongrie, Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design

The Jury was impressed by the strong narrative and great design of the film. It was an interesting depiction of an 'outsider' character finding a solution to her unusual predicament – told with a poetic style and sense of humour.
