Jury's motivation:

In just one minute, the film manages to play with our perceptions of time and space, create a captivating journey through the most classic scenes and lines in film history, dare to use technical elements, and weave it together with humor and originality. We believe in the power and playfulness of this filmmaker.
Therefore, the prize is awarded to "FINAL COUNTDOWN"
