Following the world premiere of I Would Rather Be a Stone by Ana Hušman in the Tiger Shorts competition of the International Film Festival Rotterdam, the film was awarded with an official nomination for the European Short Film Award.

The Tiger Short Jury 2024 consisted of the former Tiger Short Award-winner Mónica Lima, writer, programmer, and researcher Yasmina Price, and distributor, curator and festival producer Jade Wiseman.

The jury on I Would Rather Be a Stone“Through a lyrical and sensorial attention to a landscape threatened by ecological and economic changes, this filmmaker presents a disarmingly caring gaze, sewed together by a masterfully poetic narration. A region of Croatia is shown through a moving tapestry of personal and collective memories, to tenderly consider the traces we leave behind.”

IFFR is one of a series of film festivals throughout Europe that submits a candidate for the short film category of the European Film Awards.

Our warmest congratulations to Ana and the whole film crew!
