Alexander Gratzer wins Prix très chic

The coveted Prix Très Chic pour le Film le Plus Extraordinaire was awarded to the film with the most absurd humour: The animation artist Alexander Gratzer (AT) got to take home the first trophy of VIS 2017 for “Im Wohnzimmer / In the living room”.

The audience made the decision by sending the applause-o-meter off the charts, congratulating the artist, cheering and singing. Gratzer opened the program with his minimalistic black and white animation and - outside competition - ended it with a surprise film. His stipped-down and abstruse approach to everyday situations have won over numerous fans in the Filmcasino.
