The Glasgow Short Film Festival drew to a close today with its awards ceremony. Duncan Cowles received the Scottish Award for Directed By Tweedie, whilst special mention went to Cailleach. Morgan Knibbe won the Bill Douglas Award for best International Short Film for Shipwreck, about a survivor of the sinking that saw hundreds of Eritreans drown off the coast of Lampedusa.

The Channel 4 Innovation in Storytelling award went to Monkey Love Experiments directors Will Anderson and Ainslie Henderson, whilst the International Audience Award was won by Don Hertzfeld's World Of Tomorrow, though Don himself (best know for providing voices in The Simpsons) was incommunicado and does not yet know of his success. The Scottish Audience award was won by Zam Salim for Dropping Off Michael and accepted by writer and producer James Price, who was extremely excited about their success.

The ceremony, which followed five days of screenings, was itself followed by a party with unique festival beer..
