    Congratulations to the winner Janne J. Vanhanen (Finnland) for the Panther Prize 2017 which was awarded for his work as director and his movie ABOUT THE BIRDS AND THE BEES.

    Worst fears of a quiet farmer father come true as his teenage son has an accident with a girl. A quick trip to the pharmacy is needed to save the situation. Everything doesn’t go as planned, however.

    To see how this short, but great story evolves convinced the jury. An excellent direction and the good staging of the actors are remarkable. The camera work is well done and completes the overall picture.
