- Feature Documentary-Fiction Film
While filming a documentary on men and play, the director runs into a major creative block. In the period that follows he begins to feel his surroundings as part of the game. His childhood memories and images of the unfinished project integrate into an ode to the absurdity of gesture.

Jury's justification: For its strong, memorable and vibrant cinematic language, its bold and surprising storytelling and its creative and alternative approach to the way we see men. In Playing Men, the male state of being is addressed in a funny, timely and touching way.

Duhovit dokumentarec, ki nas pelje preko fizične do mentalne igre, dokler tudi igra sama ne izgine in v njej ostane samo pesem. Bivanjsko tesnobo, ki jo povzroči odsotnost Igre, avtor z ironično avtosamorefleksijo izkoristi, da se skupaj z njim spomnimo Igre, igranja in igrivosti.
