For best creative documentary on art
BALKAN BAROQUE by Piere Coulibeuf from 
France
The film was prasied by the committee as an 
exceptional film both masochistic, narcissistic, provocative and disturbing. It 
works both as an introduction to the life and work of Martina Abramovic and as a 
piece of art itself. It really creates its own genre, amnd therefore best 
fulfils the criteria "creative documentary".
 
For best TV documentary
PEACE BY PIECE by Sharon Shamir from 
Israel
A brave film entering difficult and profoundly political 
territory. The film remains personal, open ended and humaine. The seeds of the 
human capacity for change are here.

A challenging essay of ideas whose unsual form matches and 
complements the content.
