The Int'l Fest of Cinema and Technology Announces 2007 Award Winners

The Int'l Fest of Cinema and Technology announced the winners from its 2007 festival tour. This past year's festival events featured a wide variety of films in different award categories. Festival events took place in The Philippines, Washington DC, New York, Jacksonville, Florida, Los Angeles, Burlington, Vermont and London. The International Fest of Cinema and Technology has been presenting touring film festival events since 2002. The IFCT World Tour is designed to give exposure to independent films many of which previously had been underexposed to the public. The festival's motto is it seeks to "discover the undiscovered film." The "technology" in the festival's name occurs both in the content of the festival, which tends to focus on themes of technology or feature unique creation techniques, as well as in the method of showcasing content at the events.

Among this year's award winners were a few award "sweeps" including THE RECE!PT Directed by Tim Garrick which won The IFCT 2007 Award for Best Short and The IFCT 2007 Award for Best Comedic Short. THE RECE!PT is an innovative and comedic homage to Run Lola Run starring Matthew D. McCallum, Kristen Bell, and Dina Meyer. About his multiple wins, Garrick stated "We are extremely honored to have won the Best Comedic Short and Best Short awards for the IFCT 2007 World Tour. The opportunity to be part of a truly international film festival was amazing. We were thrilled that our film found a home in IFCT's prestigious 2007 line up."

Other winners of multiple award categories included the French short film "Play the Game," Directed by Stéphane Barbato, which won The IFCT 2007 Award for Best European Short Film, Runner-Up for Best Short and and Honorable Mention for Best Cinematography in a Short Film. Play the Game is inspired by a true story taken from the First World War. Razor Fish Directed by UK filmmaker Helen Williams won The IFCT 2007 Award for Best UK Short, Honorable Mention for The IFCT 2007 Award for Best UK Short and Honorable Mention for The IFCT 2007 Award for Best Female Director. Razor Fish stars Academy-award winner Brenda Fricker (My Left Foot) About her win, Williams stated "This is my second short and entirely self funded. It has been a labour of love on everyone's part with the entire cast and crew doing it out of the goodness of their hearts." The film Ed I Hide Directed by Suzanne Laine and Len Peltier won The IFCT 2007 Award for Best Screenplay and The IFCT 2007 Award for Best Female Director

IFCT has a large selection of animated films and films with FX and innovative visuals. Henry Selick's short animated film "Moongirl" won The IFCT 2007 Award for Best Animation. Selick is the stop-motion guru behind The Nightmare Before Christmas and James and the Giant Peach. Protocole33 Directed by Benoît Lestang won two awards: The IFCT 2007 Award for Best Visual FX and The IFCT 2007 Award for Best Visual Innovation. Lestang has worked as a special effects make-up artist on over 50 feature films.
