VINNARE 2018

 

AWARD CATEGORIES:

1. NATURAL HISTORY

What is natural history filmmaking? - it is not only the preservation of flora and fauna, it is the discovery of new information to science and to the general public.

And to achieve this, the filmmaker has to have extensive knowledge not only about the process of filmmaking, but also about the chosen subjects.

1st place:  Lemming - The Little Giant Of The North Hungary/Sweden (Festival Best)

2nd place: The Rhoen - A Natural Paradise in the Heart of Germany Germany

3rd place: The Canary Islands - World of the Fire Mountains Austria

 

2. ENVIRONMENT & CONSERVATION

We have received many candidates for this category from all around the world – and – all have stories to tell regarding our sucess and failure in the environment and its conservation.

1st place:  White Fortune  Iran

2nd place: Lake of Apples, Macedonia

3rd place: The Shuidong Connection,  United Kingdom

 

3. NORDIC

There are many filmmakers of various nationalities in this Nordic category who see Scandinavia from different perspectives of how they see life in this northern region.

1st place: Queen without LandNorway

2nd place: Wild Baltic Sea Ep.3: From Finland to Sweden,  Germany

3rd place: White Moos, Sweden

 

4. SHORT

To tell a short story one has to stick to the paradigm in order to maintain the story's directive. It is not what you say it is what you do not say that counts. Stick to the issue in order to get the message across.

1st place: Life on the Machair, United Kingdom

2nd place: Guardians of Anja, United Kingdom

3rd place: Daroji, India


5. UNDERWATER

The Oceans have yet to reveal their treasures and at this moment in time we know very little about them. New discoveries are being made every day from the shallows to the great depths.

The following films have demonstrated the remarkable life beneath the waves.

1st place:  Lionfish - New Pirates of the Caribbean, Germany

2nd place: Underwater Wilderness – Sudan, Hungary

3rd place: Sea of Life, Canada

 


6. SCIENCE

Science presented in an audio visual format is informative and can be entertaining and allows for easy comprehension not only for the academic, but for the general public.

1st place: The World according to TermitesCzech Republic

2nd place: Budapest Inferno Hungary

3rd place: World without Insects Germany

7. ENERGY

Energy is in everything – it is needed to sustain life from production, transportation, communication, agriculture and the commodities required by human populations in order to function. But where does it come from? - are the resources limitless or will they eventually run out and if this is the case what are we doing to solve the problem?

1st place: The Secret Life of Materials United Kingdom/Greece

2nd place: The fight for the Arctic from Germany

3rd place: Closing the loop from Belgium


8. CLIMATE CHANGE

What is climate change – is it a natural phenomenon or is it man made or a combination of both. Do we have enough time to save the environment in the long term so that future generations are able to survive?

The winning films have addressed this problem giving possible solutions to prevent a catastrophe.

1st place: GrassrootsAustralia

2nd place: The Sea and the Land from Germany

3rd place: The Pale Horse, also from Germany


9. ANIMATION

There are many styles of animation which are a surrealistic art form, but what does a filmmaker need to make a sucessful film? You need a good story with a good message in order to emphasise the meaning.

1st place:  Blue tomorrow, Turkey

2nd place: Green Invasion, Argenitina

3rd: place: Tasteful, USA

 

10. JURY'S SPECIAL AWARD

The jury's special award is given to a film that has outstanding qualities where the filmmakers have demonstrated their ability to capture scenes never seen before - information that is new to science, education and to the general public. Out of the many films that qualified for this award 3 contenders were selected as they offered more than most due to their dexterity and prowess as filmmakers.


1st place: White wolves – Ghosts of the ArcticGermany

2nd place: Birds of the Lakes Return,  Slovenia

3rd place: Life behind the Stars, Spain

Facebook banner
 
Naturfilmfestivalen Wildlife Vaasa åker i år ut på filmturné runt om i Finland. Startevenemanget för turnén som hör till programmet under jubileumsåret Finland 100 ordnas fre-lör 27–28.1 i kulturhuset Fanny i Vasa.
 
Naturfilmer visas med non stop-principen fredag kl. 10-20 och lördag kl. 13-19. Evenemanget har fritt inträde. Tidtabellen finns här.

 

Själva festivalen ordnas med två års mellanrum, dvs. följande gång hösten 2018. Detta mellanår deltar festivalen i jubileumsåret Finland 100 med temat:

 

Finland och dess natur med utomstående ögon.

SuomiFinland100-banneri sininen RGB 790x444

I filmserien som kommer att visas på olika håll i Finland får man se de finska skogarnas rena och mångsidiga natur med utländska filmskapares ögon. Syftet är att visa hur utomstående ser vårt lands naturrikedom.

 

På sommaren till Kina

Det är också meningen att en del av filmserien ska visas separat för skolelever i Vasaregionen, invandrare och andra intresserade målgrupper.

 

Under 2017 tänker vi även lansera filmerna i fråga utomlands på olika filmfestivaler. Exempelvis i juli visas filmserien i Shanghai i samarbete med evenemanget China International Animal and Natur Film Festival

Filmen om nationalparken Kalkalpen vann Wildlife Vaasa -naturfilmstävlingen, bäst bland de nordiska filmerna var Marko Röhrs Tale of a lake

 

Den internationella juryn har valt vinnaren av Wildlife Vaasa -festivalens naturfilmstävling.  Till vinnare i den naturhistoriska serien och samtidigt hela tävlingen valdes Rita och Michael Schlambergers Making an ancient forest – Kalkalpen. I filmen reser man till de avsides skogarna i nationalparken Kalkalpen i Österrike, den största vildmarken vid Alperna. Andra i serien blev en film om nationalparken Yellowstone och tredje en film om floden Amur.

Av de finländska filmerna placerade sig Marko Röhrs Tale of a lake bäst och den vann serien med nordiska filmer.  Även de övriga belönade filmerna i serien är gjorda av finländare. Andra priset i serien gick till Petteri Saarios Oulanka and Paanajärvi: The healing power of nature, som hör till serien Magic of the wilderness. Tredje blev Päivi Kapiainen-Heiskanens film The reindeer belong to the wind.

Juryn bedömer filmerna utifrån bl.a. intrig, bild- och ljudbearbetning, textning och presentation samt det pedagogiska och underhållningsvärdet.

Till filmtävlingen anmäldes i år 922 filmer från mer än 80 länder, vilket är rekord. Till final kom 60 filmer och om specialpriserna tävlade 50 filmer och de representerar allt som allt 58 olika länder.

Naturfilmsfestivalen Wildlife Vaasa ordnades i Vasa 28.9–2.10.2016. Temat för festivalen som ordnas vartannat år var detta år energi och klimatuppvärmning.

Ordnandet av naturfilmsfestivalen Wildlife Vaasa möjliggjordes av Vasa stad, Österbottens förbund, KulturÖsterbotten, Svenska kulturfonden, Etelä-Pohjanmaan kulttuurirahasto, Bröderna Gröndahls stiftelse, Hedmans stiftelse och stödföreningen för festivalen Wildlife Vaasa.

WildLife Vasa-festivalen på Finlands västkust ordnas vartannat år. Sedan starten 2002 har dess betydelse växt och den har fått beröm av deltagare, delegater, media och av allmänheten över hela världen. Wildlife Vaasa är Skandinaviens ända internationella naturfilmsfestival. Österbottens museum/Terranova har fungerat som arrangör för festivalen fram till 2015. Arrangörs-ans­varet flyttades över till Kulturcentret inom Vasa stad från och med 1.1.2016.

Festivalens viktigaste tyngdpunkt ligger på naturfilmstävlingen, som har deltagare världen över. Deltagande i festivalen möjliggör förevisande av filmer gratis till invånare i Vasa med omnejd samt deltagare runt världen. Vasa stad och Österbotten förs tydligt fram i övriga världen genom att finalisterna och vinnarna i tävlingarna sprider information om vår region. Alla deltagande filmer är nya produktioner och ges internationell spridning efter festivalen.
