The awards evening was held at Brockenhurst College on 08 June where  industry specialists and filmmakers gathered to watch winning entries in a variety of genres from comedy to horror, and documentary to music.

The festival competition celebrates films of under 10 minutes from around the world at international and student levels.

Music videos, animation, and no-budget films, were amongst the almost one hundred short films submitted for the award from around the world, all of an impressive standard.

The judging panel, including the New Forest residents of film critic Mark Kermode, TV presenter Jon Cuthill, and director Keith English, spent over 14 hours watching the shortlisted films and had a tough choice to make for the winners.
