A magisterial environmental indictment as well as being a cinematic work of pure beauty.
The heart fluctuates from wonder to anger, a magnificent, intriguing and painful film.
Direction, photography, editing, sound, and music are combined in this film to achieve a masterpiece.
A bleak but gripping film that takes us into an entirely foreign world but is wisely content to leave us without any pat answers to the questions raised.
A gorgeously photographed, compulsively watchable and deeply sympathetic film that avoids dates, maps and biography in favour of myth and mystery.

A beautifully shot, intelligent, atmospheric and completely unsensationalised account of Greenland’s unique justice system, set against the background of a huge culture shift which has bred a plethora of social problems. Superb.

Conflict Tiger is awarded the Grand Prize and the Audience Award for the lasting relevance of its theme, uniqueness of subject, visual brilliance and overall excellence. The film possesses high cinematic qualities, excellent sense of drama and highlights the filmmaker’s own commitment.
Absorbing, atmospheric and genuinely illuminating.
Many of the messages found in all the films we viewed were encompassed in this impressive story. Always on the border of fiction and documentary, the film creates intense suspense and tension. The story is an insight into the beginning of myths and legends. Bringing in a universal code of ethics, we see why a whole ecosystem is paramount for the survival of tiger, forest, and man.
One compelling film with a beauty that becomes ever more precious as we bear witness to it’s destruction. Hadwin’s act was a supreme statement of self-sacrifice, akin to God watching the crucifixion of Christ.
