Director Amanda Bonaiuto is a Jury Winner in Stockholm Experimental and Animation Film Festival 2017! Batfish Soup is awarded with the price Best Animated Film!

Amanda Bonaiuto’s work contains strong autobiographical elements. Travels and memories, going back as far as childhood, have been an important source of inspiration for her film Batfish Soup. Bonaiuto’s tell the story of a dysfunctional family in a rhythmically floating way. Her poetic animations display an exquisite sense of composition; as in the case of calligraphy the empty space is as important as in the colored ones.

Director Ricard Carbonell is a Jury Winner in Stockholm Experimental and Animation Film Festival 2017! Patarei Prison is awarded with the price Best Experimental Film!

Ricard Carbonell’s works are characterized by quiet, almost meditative state. His film Patarei Prison is tied both to the strong narrative tradition and to the considerably conceptual tradition of the experimental film medium.


During the period of 1920-2002 Patarei (Tallinn, Estonia) was a prison. Until quite recently you could visit the empty rooms. These spaces are explored, in the film, by a naive, bouncing, tennis ball.
The idea of this artistic “performance” was to relate the architecture spaces of a prison.

Ricard Carbonell has a PhD in cinema from the Complutense University of Madrid, has diplomas from the universities of Barcelona, ECAM Madrid and Microobert (Barcelona). Today he is teaching Cinema at TAI Cinema School (R.J.C. University) in Madrid.
