BEST ONE MINUTE SHORT FILM

Film: Seeking a space called Peace

Directed by: Maaz Kazmi


Synopsis: It's a telling tale of today's geo-political scenario. In turbulent times, a helpless but resilient mother seeks a space called 'peace' for her unborn child.


BEST LGBT FILM

Film: The Parlor with Jeff + Cosgrove

Directed by: Daniel Maggio


Synopsis: "The Parlor" is an oral storytelling project featuring Jeff + Cosgrove (stars of the HUMP! Fest short film "The Glory Hole"). After 26 years of partnership, these elderly gay men have dozens of intimate, raw, hilarious and touching stories from their lives. As Cosgrove says, "When making life decisions, we always choose the more interesting story."

Residing in Cathedral City, Jeff and Cosgrove have turned their living room into the parlor: part cozy hangout spot, part living museum. Hundreds of photos cover the walls, representing different chapters of their relationship. They cover topics ranging from commitment, celebrity run-ins, living with HIV, pride, and what it means to be an aging queer today.

This is the first episode of the series, telling the story of their historic wedding day at San Francisco City Hall on June 28th, 2013.


BEST STUDENT FILM

Film: Coach

Directed by: Alexander Baskakov


Synopsis: The old coach receives an invitation for her girl pupil to the national fencing team. But on this day, she goes to jail for armed robbery.








BEST MUSIC VIDEO

Film: Apathy

Directed by: Daniel Mercatali


Synopsis: Today's apathy is strongly linked to the way in which we use our mobile phones. We’ve turned into zombies, checking our phones constantly whilst walking, eating, going out, playing, loving, studying. This terrible disease makes us behave like zombies.

According to the ancient philosophers, apathy was a virtue, as it kept us away from the excesses of passion and was a synonym for balance and wisdom. The apathetic, free of all emotion, could exercise their reasoning to the highest expression. Today, however, the conditions are very different. Indeed, after two millennia spent avoiding feelings in favour of pure rationality, we realise we’re equally unhappy. Consequently, we’re forced to change course and get back on the path to true happiness, and this can't be achieved if one hand is busy chatting on our phone whilst we’re talking to the person in front of us. Phone to hand we feel we’re elsewhere, disinterested in our surroundings, other people and our real needs. It’s almost as if we've been disconnected from reality, and are passive spectators of other people's lives. This is exactly when we need motivation, passion and change - the three main characters in the film - to intervene.


BEST WEB SERIES

Film: PT: Pain & Torture

Directed by: Ashley Winters


Synopsis: This NEW, offbeat and charmingly inappropriate comedy follows Ben Matthews, an optimistic physical therapist, whose whole world gets turned upside down when he meets the love of his life. Hilarity ensues when his crazy co-workers and willful patients create quite the detour on his road to love. PT is based on a true story full of workplace shenanigans, unlikely friendships and a love story for the ages!

Directed by: Arturo Dueñas Herrero


Synopsis: In the late 60s a group of artists decides to settle in a village in the ‘darkest-deepest’ Spain. Today only Felix Cuadrado Lomas still remains there, determined to reflect the landscape which surrounds him: the lands built by those who work on them.






BEST ANIMATION FILM
