Annecy 2013 – Day 6… The Winners Are In

Well, the festival is a wrap and the winners are in. Big night for Daniel Sousa from the USA who scooped 3 awards for his short Ferel. Really pleased to see Chris Landreth won best short overall for Subconscious Password, although I’m disappointed I didn’t manage to see it. Never mind, I’m sure I’ll get another chance sooner or later! Here are the winners, along with images from their films where I could find them…
