Cannes Short Film Corner Winner is…

Awards_annies_02 Last week, I asked everyone who reads the blog to watch and vote for a great little animated short film called Sebastian’s Voodoo, as it was playing in the Cannes Short Film Corner (original post and film here). And I just got this email from Joaquin, the film maker…

‘It's official! We won at Cannes by over 2,100 votes! (Sebastian's Voodoo got about 3,500 votes and the film in second place was at about 1,400 only). It's an amazing, huge difference.

Thank you so much for helping me with the votes! I was checking the stats on where the views were coming from and there was a huge amount coming from your blog. Thanks dude, really awesome.

Amazing, so your vote really did make a difference, and it proves that as film makers, we are cultivating out audiences and successes by bringing our communities along with us on the journey of our movies. It also proves that we as a group of film makers, can also help each other. It’s so often forgotten in the British film industry, that we are ALL in the same boat. Awesome and well done Joaquin!

Onwards and upwards!

Chris Jones, Film Maker and Author
