Jury Statement of Adia Trischler, Helin Celik and Marija Milovanovic:
“In a very personal way, the filmmakers were able to build a bridge between past and present. In times of political upheaval, they recall in coherent, cinematic form, relevant events in the European history and reflect them. The relevance of the topic, the diversity and the openness of the protagonists have moved, touched and convinced us in different ways. The Austrian this human world jury prize goes to The European Grandma Project (by Alenka Maly). “
