The Fipresci jury awarded the film saying: " The film is very artistic, full of poetry and invention about everyday life. "
The International jury at the Ludwigsburg European Short Film Biennale awarded Toz a special mention: " Toz focuses on a space which becomes a prison for the souls of the characters. They struggle to recognize themselves and so remain invisible in front of the camera. And in the end the viewers experience a feeling of quiet mourning which has a lasting effect even after the film has finished. "
