LIST OF THE HONOURED

“Best Talent Project”
One project from the “New Talent Project” category will be honoured as “Best Talent Project” by the SIFF PROJECT jury panel according to the originality and creativity to encourage the unique style of the director.
-Cadillac (Director: WANG Yiyu, Producer: Dongxu SHAW, Yufan Morgan CHEN)
Jury Comments:
As a young director,WANG Yiyu shows a creative and unique perspective and a rich emotional appeal in her first film. Starting from the family purchasing a car, this story demonstrates dozens of contradictions of contemporary urban life.

“Most Creative Project”
One project from the SIFF PROJECT finalists apart from those of “New Talent Project” and “Work-in Progress” Project, will be honoured as “Most Creative Project” by the SIFF PROJECT jury panel according to the originality and creativity.
-Night of Hustling (Director: YU Guangyi, Executive Producer: HAN Jie, Producer: HAN Jie)
Jury Comments:
A fascinating story which is absurd and full of tension. With vivid characters and solid cultural deposits, it is a new attempt of telling story by a documentary director who is rooted in the category of ethnology and anthropology. We expect it so much.

 “Jury’s Choice”
One project from the SIFF PROJECT finalists apart from those of “Work-in Progress” Project will be specially honoured as “Jury’s Choice” by the SIFF PROJECT jury panel.
-Spring Lies Forsaken (Director: WU Lang, Executive Producer: Ming-Liang TSAI, Producer: YAN Yunfei)
Jury Comments:
The director embodies the characters and time as carriers, trying to show the aesthetic feeling of the dislocation between psychological space and real space which provides an opportunity to imagine a new film language and aesthetic presentation.  

“Best WIP Project”
One project from the SIFF PROJECT Work-in Progress finalists will be honoured as “Best WIP Project” by the SIFF PROJECT jury panel according to its originality and visual quality.
-Lost (Director: LUO Dan, Executive Producer: PEMA Tseden, Producer: SHANG Zhe)                   
Jury Comments:
Both the story and the audio-visual language are full of tension and power. The Tibetan culture\'s unique and broader view of life is conveyed in an allegorical narrative of an ethical dilemma. It is an affectionate story with reasonable production controlling.
