The Sphinx Award for the best video:

Dalibor Baric, Nepoznate energije, neidentificirani osjećaji, 40 min, Stereo, Croatia, 2015

Film Nepoznate energije, neidentificirani osjećaji (Unknown energies, unidentified emotions) refers to the experimental film festival GEFF, with the same title, but which didn’t take place in 1971. Based on that idea Dalibor Baric’s film-essay develops the concept of bio-film, whose only subject is the human mind. Using many image layers including found-footage, experimental film’s methods and procedures, animation and intriguing profilm text, he succeeds to achieve the pure film of mind.
