Yet again the WEFF has proved to be a successful & spectacular night for both Australian short film and the local community at the West End. Facilitated by the generous Rumpus Room, filmmakers and their passionate audience were able to enjoy a great selection of very diverse short films.
As a highlight of the evening we were proud to announce this year’s winners of the West End Film Festival:
Best Animation – Teagan
Producer Tim Brown and Directors Igor Coric and Sheldon Lieberman, the directors of ‘Teagan’ Igor Coric and Sheldon Lieberman
Indigenous Filmmaker Award – Old Mate
Producer Skye White and Writer-Director Sam Dixon
Best Film – All God’s Creatures
Producer Taylor Litton-Strain, Writer Jessica Paine and Writer-Director Brendon McDonall
Brendon McDonall wasn’t able to attend the festival. During his video acceptance message he gave the audience a little insight on what inspired him to make this movie.
We want to thank all our generous sponsors, especially the prize sponsors Cr Helen Abrahams and Grill’d West End, as well as:
Steetscape, Taxi Films, Screen Queensland, Brisbane City Council, 2plik8 Studios, Fats Digital and WECA – West End Community Association.
A special thank you to the Rumpus Room which provided us with such an extraordinary location. Thank you to everyone who came out to support the festival, as well as the staff and volunteers who brought it all together. Without all your support the festival wouldn’t exist.
With the closing of the 2014 Festival, the doors are already opening for 2015.
Remember to mark the festival on your calendar and we encourage all aspiring filmmakers to submit films.
