Quotes from the winners:

“I was with my brother having my last beer overlooking Bondi beach saying how great I thought the festival was when I got a message saying we had won the Audience prize for This Is England ‘86. I immediately called Shane the director who was so happy and proud to have won. For us the audience prize is a real honour so on behalf of myself, Shane and our incredible cast and crew we thank everyone who voted for us and came to see our films.  We really feel honoured.” – Mark Herbert, Co-Producer, This Is England ‘86

“Wow, that's such a great feeling! Thank you audience. I can't wait to get it out to more audiences worldwide - thanks for being the first!” – Mitzi Goldman, Director-Producer, A Common Purpose
