    Default Congratulations to all involved...

    Just a quick note to say congrats to all involved in the winning productions. It's impossible to see all the films because there's simply not enough time, but I checked out all the shorts and was well impressed. Very high standard overall.

    Apologies for my loud laughter during "Nun More Deadly" - I was the hairy guy near the front who just couldn't stop giggling throughout! Definitely the funniest short I've ever seen - excellently shot and a fantastic script. The ironic "put down the gun - put down the pen" line has been bringing a cheesy grin to my face ever since!

    Hats off to Vanessa Gildea for "The White Dress" also. The majority of the shorts shown in that session were comedy orientated and this one was subtle and sensitive in it's treatment of a rarely highlighted social problem. Stuck with me and well worth a look for anyone who missed it.

    Also loved "Wednesday" by Sam Keogh - such a simple idea but perfectly executed.

    Wish I'd seen more films over the week but there are only a limited numbver of hours in every day! Did anyone catch "Grbavica" by Jasmila Zbanic in the cinemobile on Sunday afternoon. It was such a moving and emotional story.

    Anyway, enough rambling. Congrats to all the filmmakers for a really super show and thanks to all involved in the organisation of the festival.
