I LOVE LIFE / WINNER STHLM.DOC 2005
STHLM.DOC rewards the best short documentary film in Stockholm County 2005. The prize consists of a production scholarship of SEK 25,000 from Film Stockholm and the possibility of a viewing of the winning film at Folkets Bio.
This year’s jury members were photographer and director Jens Assur, Folkets Bio distributor Bettan von Horn, director of Tempo Documentary Festival Sofi Lagergren, director Agnieszka Lukasiak and SVT Documentary program director Ingemar Persson. Editor was Love Svensson.
The jury’s motivation:
"STHLM.DOC O5 goes to a warm film, one of a kind that – unlike what one might think – you rarely come across these days. It skilfully balances the heavy and the humorous, efficiently presenting a problem while allowing the person dealing with it to take his space and fully come to life. A mature documentary that also makes us curious on the future work from these film makers.”
