Explantaion of the jury „The winner of the second prize this evening was earlier this year described by Quintin Tarantino as having created a ‘poetic story'. The jury could think of no better words to describe his brilliant cinematography. Something seems to have happened happen when he has turned on his camera which complements ideally the sadness and love of this mystical story.The award to the cinematographer of Silent Soul, the Russian cinematographer Mikhail Krichman  is richly deserved for the simplicity and power he has brought to create such memorable imagery."

The award was granted by Kristina Depo, representative by the Sparkasse Bank and received by the author himself.

The official jury was composed of Dante Spinotti (president), Martin Schweighofer, Goce Smilevski, Eva Zaoralova and Nigel Walters.
