22 companies from around the world were competing and the standard, attendance and number of sober people was all super-high

they were competing for charity and pride and honour. and these trophies

the relief was palpable as the makers of these fab films finally saw their own work for the first time ever

the entered companies voted for gold, silver, bronze but not for their own film. the audience volume after the films was scientifically measured and the audience award was for the film with the loudest reaction (aside from the trophy winning films).

and the results are:

gold
     i am justin waite - iris worldwide 
          £1000 goes to wateraid

silver
     répetez s’il-vous-plait - the producers brisbane (australia)
           £500 goes to médecins sans frontières

bronze
     in transit - 18 feet & rising (uk)
          £250 goes to stonewall


audience award
     if - skin and bones (canada)

massive congratulations to the winners. many of the audience remarked on what a strong selection of films they had just seen
