The Lolly Award Jury awarded SOMETHING SAID from Jay Bernard the Lolly Award for Best XPOSED Short Film!

The Jury stated – A lucid and complex short film that delves into the black British history, creating a powerful image of how history is affecting bodies.” SOMETHING SAID by Jay Bernard is the sensational winner of the Lolly Award for best XPOSED short film.

The LOLLY AWARD Jury also handed out two special mentions:

For taking us to a visually arresting territory between documentary and fantasy where questions of ecological and economical relationships, migration and social hierarchies are explored in the context of a tender romance borne in disaster we want give an honorable mention to FLORES by Jorge Jácome.

For impressing us by telling a narrative that creates a strong empowering lesbian female character, who manages to asserts her agency in repressive social space, we also want to honor WOULD YOU LOOK AT HER by Goran Stolevski

The Queer Short Film Fund was awarded to AMIGAS… MUY AMAIGAS by Tonina Matamalas!

Amigas… muy Amigas follows traces of lesbian visibility in Spanish popular culture and transforms them into a vibrating collage. With the help of a €1000 a cash prize, €2000 in in kind support from 25p *cine support GmbH – Filmtechnikverleih Berlin, Audio Post Production sessions at the Berliner Union Film and a mentor-ship programme, the realisation of this project is taken to a next step.  We are so thrilled to see this work in the near future.

Thank you again to everyone for your support in making this festival what is is today!

Until next year,
