What the jury said:"The story and the way it has been transformed into a short movie feels epic in its scope and delivery. The movie is charming and beautifully rendered. It is also very faithful to the original text of the picture book; it brings wonderfully enlarged characters to life and expands visually the narrative by representing sea life with a 3D of delightful quality."

What the jury said:"The tv series is a great adaptation of a great story, with excellent screenplay, witty dialogues and a modern style that manages to be visually faithful to the graphic novel. The stories of the tv series go beyond the books and capture the mystery and magic of Hilda's world."
