The winner of the £1000 Jury Prize is James Lowne for his film Someone behind the door knocks at irregular intervals.
Jury member Gary Thomas, and Animate Projects’ Director said, “It is a film that directly addresses the strangeness of the digital - it defies the pursuit of shiny perfection, and revels in the failings of its own digitally crafted construction. It's also beautifully, cinematically composed and engaging.”
Joe Hardy and Kristian de la Riva were awarded Special Mentions.
The Animate OPEN Jury was: Francesca Gavin, writer, curator and Visual Arts Editor at Dazed & Confused; Rebecca Shatwell, Director, AV Festival; Gary Thomas, Director, Animate Projects; and artist and music video director, David Wilson.
