Denmark's Minyamba won the Yoram Gross Award for Best Animation, US film Slomo took Best Dcumentary and Best Digital Production went to the UK's Orbit Ever After, a tale of romance complicated by family entanglements and living in space.

Kingdom Of Doug won top prize in the Australian category, with David Lyons taking Best Director for Record, Bonnie Elliot winning Best Cinematography for Perception and Best EDiting going to Ariel Martin for iMom.

Australians can now look forward to the festival going on tour.
