SEAFF III | Jury & Audience winners!

Third edition of Stockholm Animated Experimental Film Festival was held on Cinema Zita in Stockholm on January 5th, and after jury delibiration and the counting of the audience votes we’re ready to reveal the winners. Again we’d like to thank all of our film makers, visitors and the staff of Zita and Bongo Bar for making all of this possible. We can’t wait to do it all over again!

Jury winner of the Experimental category is Ilaria Di Carlo‘s The Divine Way. As a woman descents through an endless labyrinth of staircases, they mutate and she is trapped and pulled into their dangerous landscape.

Jury winner of the Animated category is Luca Cioci‘s Medium Rare, a clay-mated experiment of functional and aesthetic values in recurrent, yet questionable domestic scenarios.

Winners of the Audience award are

SEAFF III | Medium Rare

Functional and aesthetic values in recurrent, yet questionable domestic scenarios.

Luca Cioci is a filmmaker and visual artist from Italy. He recently graduated with a BFA in Animation from CalArts and currently resides in Los Angeles working as a multi-disciplinary freelancer.

SEAFF III | Meeting MacGuffin

In a post-apocalyptic future where humanity has fallen apart, a group of scientists and an animated sign complete the construction of a new human race and meet a groundhog climatologist who prepares them for their mission to restore balance to the decimated Earth.

Catya Plate, born in Barcelona, Spain, and raised in Germany, is a Brooklyn based award winning filmmaker and multidisciplinary artist. Her animated films, sculptures, paintings, and drawings explore the ephemeral nature of existence by creating an alternative universe, which exposes, among other things, humanity’s impact on the environment.

SEAFF III | Overcooked

An account of human interaction in a waiting room. Overcooked is primarily exploring what one could call the peripheries of the physical and the social: an intersection of emissions, absorptions, rejects, absurdities and distortions. We’re dealing with materialities, whether of bodies, formless blubbering or active objects – everything that somehow steps over the edges is welcome. The outcome neither expresses standardised feelings nor bodies, but rather those that exaggerate, fathom and undermine normed sensations.

Flaccid Knob is an audio-visual collaborative which consists of Nadja Kurz (visual artist, Germany) and Per Warberg (musician, Sweden), founded in 2014, which mainly experiments with various synthesizers, field recording, samples and noise.
