This year filmmaker Noël Loozen (2014) from Geleen has won the prize for Best Experimental Film for his short film 'Ein Prost'. Noël Loozen made Ein Prost as part of the Intensive Care theme week. In the film, the smoking room - as an appendix to the care building - is presented as a place where free will wins against the urge to become better.
