Entries impress judges

THE inaugural Northern Rivers short film competition called Byron All Shorts collected over 50 short films from film makers across the region.

Shorts director Shane Rennie said he and the judges were impressed with the quality of entries.

“We are looking forward to developing further the Byron All Shorts competition next year,” he said.

Best Film was awarded to Warchild, by Richard Jones, a story taking place around the Iraq war.

Highly commended awards went to Woodwork for Women by Miriam Salmom and a music video clip called Black Widow by Tomer Barzide and Tom Jones.

The audience award for best film went to Woodwork for Women.

Mr Rennie said the competition was held in conjunction with this year's Flickerfest International Short Film Festival, hosted by iQ Arts and Eco Centre and held at Bangalow I and A Hall.
