THE MAFF 2017 GRAND PRIX WENT TO NORWEGIAN DIRECTOR
The Grand Prix of the festival was awarded to Norwegian director Are Pilskog for his documentary "A Toad Story". In a deep fjord in Norway a small community is changed forever, as a new European road route threatens the local toads. A Toad Story is a warm film about seeing greatness in the planets smallest creatures.
The jury described the winning film as follows: Great films stay with us long after we’ve walked out of the cinema and inspire us to think about our place in the world. The winner of the Grand Prix does just that, it’s an amusing and uplifting film that shows how passion for nature, even an odd little creature, can make big things happen.
