Glasgow Short Film Festival winners announced

Tumult takes international audience award.

by Jennie Kermode

The Glasgow Short Film Festival announced its annual awards tonight at a ceremony in the Centre for Contemporary Arts (CCA). Viking adventure Tumult took the international audience award whilst the Bill Douglas award - chosen by the jury to recognise the Best International Short Film - went to Fini, a personal story about an elderly man who doesn't let his mental decline stop him having fun.

The jury was unanimous in voting The Making Of Longbird winner of the Scottish Short Film Award. This inventive look at an animator's struggle with his character has been receiving attention from all around the world and looks like becoming a hit with critics and audiences alike. This year's Scottish audience award was a tie, split between Kirkcaldy Man and Philippa And Nancy.

A special mention went to Ghosts, an experimental short film which observes a conversation between two men who are waiting for something to happen.
