Green Screen International Film Festival
Germany, September 2016, Awards "Best Film" and "Best Postproduction"
Laudatio „Bester Film“: Nur selten gelingt es Filmemachern ein so stimmungsvolles Gesamtkunstwerk zu schaffen. Die einzelnen Instrumente des Werks - Bildgestaltung, souveräne Nachbearbeitung, packende Erzählweise - wirken so virtuos zusammen, dass eine filmische Sinfonie entsteht. Wo die Natur selbst Regie führt, beginnt wieder ein dramatischer Kreislauf von Werden und Vergehen. Den Machern gelingt es, Tiefverborgenes aufzudecken: Wenn Käfer Kriege führen, Pflanzen Warnrufe verschicken und Pilze nach ihrem Tod zu leben beginnen, dann gelingt das Kunststück Poesie und Wissensgewinn elegant miteinander zu verbinden. „Zurück zum Urwald - Nationalpark Kalkalpen“ ist eine Erfolgsgeschichte.

Laudatio „Beste Postproduktion“: Eine gute Postproduktion zeichnet sich aus durch das perfekte Zusammenspiel von Bildmontage, Timing und Ausdruck von Sprache und Musik und dem Sounddesign. Sie ist für den Erfolg des Films genauso unverzichtbar wie eine spannende Kamera oder eine brillante Geschichte. Und wenn dann noch das Unfilmbare erlebbar wird, verdanken wir das einer außergewöhnlich guten Animation. Wir dringen mit dem Bohrgestänge der Schlupfwespe in das Innere des Baums, reisen mit hauchdünnen Pilzfäden tief ins Totholz und wir verlieren uns im Labyrinth des Borkenkäfers.

JWFF 2011 (Japan Wildlife Filmfestival)
Japan, August 2011, "Special Jury Award". (This film gives us a deep impression as a document of a beautiful forest and ponds. However, what the film tells is deeper than that. It is a drama which people illustrated in the great Mother Nature in a long period of time. The beginning of this drama is as old as five or six centuries ago. It started by making a waterway for a pond of carps. Then, the waterway gives birth to more animals and birds living in the forest. In addition, old farmers were truly wise men. Their carps gave blessings to animals and birds, and animals and birds also gave wonderful bounties to carps. An epic told magnificently and calmly in this film gives us wisdoms that we lack in the modern society. I can only say that this is a brilliant film).

Green Screen International Film Festival
Germany, September 2016, Awards "Best Film" and "Best Postproduction"
Laudatio „Bester Film“: Nur selten gelingt es Filmemachern ein so stimmungsvolles Gesamtkunstwerk zu schaffen. Die einzelnen Instrumente des Werks - Bildgestaltung, souveräne Nachbearbeitung, packende Erzählweise - wirken so virtuos zusammen, dass eine filmische Sinfonie entsteht. Wo die Natur selbst Regie führt, beginnt wieder ein dramatischer Kreislauf von Werden und Vergehen. Den Machern gelingt es, Tiefverborgenes aufzudecken: Wenn Käfer Kriege führen, Pflanzen Warnrufe verschicken und Pilze nach ihrem Tod zu leben beginnen, dann gelingt das Kunststück Poesie und Wissensgewinn elegant miteinander zu verbinden. „Zurück zum Urwald - Nationalpark Kalkalpen“ ist eine Erfolgsgeschichte.

Laudatio „Beste Postproduktion“: Eine gute Postproduktion zeichnet sich aus durch das perfekte Zusammenspiel von Bildmontage, Timing und Ausdruck von Sprache und Musik und dem Sounddesign. Sie ist für den Erfolg des Films genauso unverzichtbar wie eine spannende Kamera oder eine brillante Geschichte. Und wenn dann noch das Unfilmbare erlebbar wird, verdanken wir das einer außergewöhnlich guten Animation. Wir dringen mit dem Bohrgestänge der Schlupfwespe in das Innere des Baums, reisen mit hauchdünnen Pilzfäden tief ins Totholz und wir verlieren uns im Labyrinth des Borkenkäfers.

JWFF 2011 (Japan Wildlife Filmfestival)
Japan, August 2011, "Special Jury Award". (This film gives us a deep impression as a document of a beautiful forest and ponds. However, what the film tells is deeper than that. It is a drama which people illustrated in the great Mother Nature in a long period of time. The beginning of this drama is as old as five or six centuries ago. It started by making a waterway for a pond of carps. Then, the waterway gives birth to more animals and birds living in the forest. In addition, old farmers were truly wise men. Their carps gave blessings to animals and birds, and animals and birds also gave wonderful bounties to carps. An epic told magnificently and calmly in this film gives us wisdoms that we lack in the modern society. I can only say that this is a brilliant film).
