Film festival winning


Garth Nix/Jonathan Nix (Australia), The Missing Key, animation, in which the gramophone hero and his faithful oboe-playing cat do not speak but respond emotionally with music and lyrics. Set in a richly re-imagined Venice of the 1920’s, layers of optical illusions transport viewers us into this charming world. This film blends characters and music from Asia, Italy and Australia.

shorts film festival

Daniel MacMunn/PROTECT(h)ER ProductionsOut of Place, a Twilight Zone like short film, is every obsessive-compulsive person’s nightmare. Spencer is fixated on keeping everything in its exact, specific place. His obsession is so extreme it has cut him off from the outside world and is now threatening his five year relationship with his girlfriend, Samantha. Well crafted, gripping short film.
