A jury of international critics (FIPRESCI Jury) presented three awards.

Prize for a film in competition:

"The Last Train" (Posledniy Poezd) by Alexei German Jr. (Russia)

subtle visual composition and long, meditative takes, the brutal absurdity of
war and the perseverance of the human spirit in the face of it".

Prize for a film in the Greek Films section:

"Oxygen" (Oxigono)

by Michalis Reppas & Thanassis Papathanasiou

"For uncovering, with authentic dialogue and gritty melodrama, the corruption

Special Mention for a film of the New Horizon section:

"The Return" (Vozvraschenie)

by Andrey Zvyagintsev (Russia)

"For its delicate balance between subject and style, its excellence in
the direction of the actors and for telling a strong story without special effects
