Award Show in Cannes: Framepool announces winners of the 2011 Framepool/ LBB/ FireFlies Challenge

Cannes, June 24th 2011 – The winners of the 2011 Framepool/ LBB/ FireFlies Challenge come from the United Kingdom, France and Germany. The prominent jury chose their favorites amongst more than 40 short-films on the topic of “compassion”. Christopher Watson-Wood, Gianni Manno, Malte Ollroge and Christoph Hars received the most scores. The awards took place in Cannes yesterday evening.

The winners and their films:

Firefly Gold
The award for the best film of the 2011 Framepool/ LBB/ FireFlies Challenge goes to „Motherless Child“ by Christopher Watson-Wood from the UK. The short-film deplores man’s effect on nature, or more specifically wildlife. It is
primarily based on archive material from Framepool, in particular animal shots against blue screen. Those are composed into urban life scenarios. Christopher Watson-Wood started his career as a visual effects artist and
worked on several major films, including the Academy-Award nominated ‘The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus’ directed by Terry Gilliam.

Turbulence Artists’ Studios: “Insurance.AES256” by Michael Takeo Magruder

On July 28, 2010, WikiLeaks posted a link to an encrypted 1.4GB file entitled insurance.aes256 on its Afghan War Diary website. The file’s appearance generated considerable speculation and debate as no official explanation was given about its contents or purpose. Countless individuals have downloaded it and redistributed on hard drives and servers spanning the world’s vast unregulated file-sharing networks, virally embedding it into the fabric of the Internet and rendering it forever obtainable and impossible to eradicate. What knowledge (or secrets) will be uncovered within its cryptic digital form?
