Final rank

2)    la chasse (France). 86 bottle caps. 12 rings

3)    voyagers (France). 75 bottle caps. 6 rings

4)    Outdoors (France). 24 bottle caps

183 jurors, with an average age of 8, took turns on the jury during the 4 days of the competition. The youngest juror was Francesco, 2 years old. Once again the jury showed a maturity beyond all expectations and selected, by a large majority, a movie that, for its content and narration, did not at first seem to be one of the favorites, even though it was considered a real masterpiece by the experts. This more traditional and funnier animated movie was able to defeat the competitors, thanks to the movie’s metaphor for the meaning of life, which clearly prevailed.
