We're thrilled to announce the inaugural recipients of the JIFF Short Film Fund: Paul Andersen and Anita Lester! Mazeltov!
Made possible by generous donations from the Pratt Foundation and an anonymous donor, the two filmmakers will each receive a $5,000 grant to make a short film to premiere at JIFF 2017.
"The overall standard of entries was extremely high and it was a difficult choice to make. In the end, we awarded the prizes to two particularly strong entries that were both highly original in their subject and well suited to the short film format." - industry judges Mike Selwyn and Gal Greenspan.
