We've run contests before, but this year we decided to share the stage with the
Sunrise Film Festival and screen some great films from around the world.
After much deliberation and some great insights by our jury panel (the fact that
they are scattered around the world hasn't helped communications-wise, but you
live and learn!)
Here are the winners for this years film awards:
Best Documentary: "The Bridge Rising" - Robbie Fraser;
Best Short Film: The fantastic "Illegal Move" - Sana Srinivasan;
Best Drama: "Exit Thread" - Paul Kimball;
For the script contest:
Full Length Feature Screenplay: "Falling into stars" by Julian
Short screenplay: "Not a Prayer" by Eddie Land AND equal winner
with "Meninio do Rio" by Eduardo Rufeisen.
The standard of scripts in both categories was extremely
high, and as you can see, the jury was unable to make a decision
for the short film category. I am told the feature script
decision was by a few points!!
Thank you everyone once again and to everyone who took part,
supported the screenings of films and helped behind the scenes,
we owe you so much! xx
