The Silver Méliès for Best European Fantastic Feature Film went to "Man Divided" by Max Kestner (Denmark/Sweden/Finland, 2017) at the latest edition of Trieste Science+Fiction Festival. The film was awarded by the Méliès Jury, composed of Enrico Magrelli (journalist and film critic), Roy Menarini (teacher and film critic), and Alessandro Mezzena Lona (journalist and writer).

The jury was convinced by the originality of Max Kestner's first fiction film, with its narrative that re-invents classic themes such as time traveling, the insecurity of survival in a not-so-distant future, the restless anxiety of the double. The film is directed with a steady hand and the acting shows great balance, disclosing a so far unknown horizon of the fantastic cinema, which belongs to Denmark and to Northern Europe, and that ought to be followed carefully.

The Silver Méliès for Best Fantastic European Short Film went to "Thunder From a Clear Sky" by Yohan Faure (France, 2018). The films are nominated for the Golden Méliès, which will be chosen in October 2018 at the Sitges Film Festival by the European Fantastic Film Festival Federation (EFFFF).
