Winners of the Gedling Festival 2014


Best Film
Special Delivery by Graham Lester George - Nottingham
best film An excellent little comedy. A simple scenario wonderfully developed showing first class story telling. The screenplay, acting, camera work and editing were all out of the top draw. The final scene will be long remembered. One of the funniest things I’ve seen in a long time.

Best Foreign Film
I Feel Lost by Juan Aragon- Mardid, Spain
best foreign film Just a little risqué and very funny. There is of course something inevitable in a film that once a man goes into a woman’s bedroom and starts trying on her under wear … but this film maker is ahead of you and at all times knows where you are going and how to make sure you don’t work it out first. Unforgettable. It would have been a worthy winner of Best Film.

Best Artistic Film
Explore Nottingham by Ashley Harvey - Cleveland
explore A carefully selected collection of images of Nottingham presented to music. The shot section is extremely good and you get the impression of passing a day in the presence of the city and its inhabitants.

Best Young Person’s Film
Offside by Holgate Academy - Hucknall
offside Slick, professional and funny. You would not guess that everyone involved it this film was new to film making. The story develops at a good pace and no scene is wasted. Could watch this one over and over. A worthy winner of the Best Young Person’s Film.

Best Animated Film
Afro Goblin and Chums by Thomas Crook - West Bridgford

afro Globlin It was probably the smoking pigs that swung it for this film. Daft, zany and fast moving. A grown up animation for those who never grew up.
