Academy AwardAMPAS (Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences) has selected five films from 39 entries coming from 23 countries. The winner of the Honorary Foreign Film Student Oscar Academy Award automatically qualifies for participation in the OSCAR competition for the best short film. The short fiction film FRAGILE by Sikander Goldau – student at the Academy of Television & Film Munich (HFF/M) - was produced by Scarmour Film & Creative Pictures (Producers: Hamid Baroua, Michael Polle and Sikander
