The Comedy Competition jury comprised 33 viewers headed by actress Dana Morávková. They were most impressed by a movie that handles the difficult subject of fruitless interpersonal communication with elegance and humour, the Swedish film Call Mom! Karolína Soukupová from Film Europe distribution picked up the prize.

The main heroine of this Swedish crazy comedy about mothers and daughters is thirty-five-year-old Niki, whose behaviour shows that maturity is not just about age. Circumstances force her to reconsider all her relationships and life decisions.

A positive film, whose mere name suggests what to do when life gets hard, was directed by Lisa Aschan. After her studies, she grabbed attention with fictitious ads for spiky “Fuck the Rapist!” tampons. She made a TV series about a girl who pretends to be a leopard. Her feature debut She Monkeys about the rivalry between girls in a riding school won awards at festivals worldwide as well as at home for the Best Swedish Film.
