46th International Film Festival Rotterdam
25 January - 5 February 2017


The jury for the Tiger Competition for Short Films completed its deliberations and announced tonight El cuento de Antonia by Jorge Cadena, Rubber Coated Steel by Lawrence Abu Hamdan and Sakhisona by Prantik Basu as the winners of the Tiger Awards for Short Films 2017. The three winning filmmakers each receive a 3,000 Euro prize. The Jury also nominated Information Skies by Metahaven to compete in the short film category of the European Film Awards (EFA) later this year.

The jury for the Tiger Competition for Short Films was made up of Finnish artist, filmmaker and former winner of this award, Salla Tykkä (Giant, 2014); University of Amsterdam professor of Media Studies Patricia Pisters, and Andrea Lissoni, Senior Curator of International Art (Film) at Tate Modern in London.
On El cuento de Antonia the jury commented: “A powerful film about a girl’s resistance to cultural and religious conventions told via different rituals of initiation. The young director demonstrates his capacity to work with actors and transpose the energy of the story in strongly framed and edited images.” On Rubber Coated Steel: “A highly topical film that digs below the surface of recorded information to investigate reality. By inventing an apparatus that translates forensic evidence, the film demonstrates how art must play a role in contemporary society.” And on Sakhisona: “A surreal, poetic approach towards the myths that are hidden in the archeological layers of the earth. The film engages the viewer in a beautiful black-and-white aesthetic and evokes a love story that connects to the vitality of nature.”

Out of the 23 nominees in competition, the jury selected Information Skies as their European Film Awards nomination: “In the tradition of the best essay films, this post-fact meditation on our high tech world stands out with its original imagery. Both the graphic quality of the animations and the distinctive dramatised scenes convey dreams and hopes for the future.”
