Golden Heynal for the director of the best film in the DocFilmMusic Competition = MELODY OF NOISE 

Die Projektion war fantastisch – grösste Leinwand bis jetzt und unglaublich guter Sound! 

Der Speech:
Michael Lindsay hat gesprochen: Er sagte, dass die Jury nach vier Tagen und den meisten Filmen bereits diskutiert hat, wer gewinnt, als sie dann am 5. Tag plötzlich, wie bei einem Pferderennen, diesen Outsider sahen. Und dieser Outsider hat alle in allen Kategorien getopt, völlig überraschend und der Fall war völlig klar:
