Pedro Rodrigues, Jessica Hausner, Giorgos Lanthimos and Valdis
Oskarsdottir, producers Peter Wintonick and Cédomir Kolar, actors

In addition, the best short film from each year’s Talent Lab participants is honored by a special jury of film professionals with an award called The Golden Egg (the films submitted for The Golden Egg should be no longer than 30 minutes long and made after January 1st, 2012).
