The winners from the short video competition
The organizers of the international digital art fest (DA Fest) and Societe Generale Expressbank – official partner of the event in 2013, announced the three finalists from the short video competition “All is well when it starts well”. Around 60 videos, submitted by students, professionals and amateurs, sent their interpretation.
„The participants did a wonderful job, and it was a pleasure for the jury to watch all original ideas. We received truly fascinating videos and I can say that it was not an easy choice”, shared Maria Rousseva, deputy-chief executive officer of Societe Generale Expressbank during the official opening of DA Fest, when the three finalists received their awards.
DA Fest jury’s selection was Maria Makedonska and her video “Let’s turn the future back”. Stefan Tonev and his video “Franky’s wine”  eceived Societe Generale Expressbank’s award, and the Facebook fans of the “I love contemporary art” page nominated Anna Nikolova and her movie “Endless smiling”
The participants in the competition were free to interpret the “All is well when it starts well” topic in their own way, using different ways and means for visualization. The stories had to be presented in a fun way with unexpected end that follows series of events in the reverse order.
All competing videos can be watched in the special app of the Facebook page “I love contemporary art”.
