2014 Images Festival: Award Winners

The 27th annual Images Festival, which was held in Toronto on April 10-19, has announced their award winners. Ten awards were given out to both seasoned filmmakers, as well as several student awards. The festival jury consisted of Shai Heredia, Heather Keung and Roxanne Sayegh.

One of the big winners was Brett Kashmere, who won the Deluxe Cinematic Vision Award for his basketball documentary From Deep. This win for Kashmere comes hot on the heels of his publishing the acclaimed fourth issue of Incite! Journal of Experimental Cinema, so it’s been a great couple of this fantastically talented filmmaker and underground film historian.

Other big winners of the festival include Benjamin Pearson, who won the prestigious Images Prize for his experimental narrative Former Models; Brigid McCaffrey, who won the Marion McMahon Award for her film Paradise Springs; and student filmmakers Jacob Robinson and Kelvin Brown from the Royal College
