CFC Worldwide Short Film Festival wraps
TORONTO — The 13th CFC Worldwide Short Film Festival wrapped Sunday with “Madame Tutli-Putli” from Chris Lavis and Maciek Szczerbowski taking the nod for animated short.
Because fest is accredited by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, pic, which won two awards for short film at Cannes, is eligible to take a run at Oscar in 2008.
The audience choice award went to Jorgen Hjerdt for “It’s My Turn Now” (Sweden); Ken Wardrop of Ireland took the nod for doc short for “Farewell Packets of Ten”; and special jury distinction went to Michael Dreher for “Fair Trade” (Germany/Morocco).
“Apres tout” (After All) from Alexis Fortier took the awards for Canadian short and for cinematography in a Canadian short, and Nicolas Roy received the nod for emerging Canadian filmmaker. His film was titled “Sunday.”
