             BEST  EXPERIMENTAL


Godhood (11m, U S A)  dir. by Billy Battle

This experimental film has deep roots in the ethereal dreamworld. At it's heart a post-modern short motion picture, it was inspired by André Bazin's article "The Ontology of the Photographic Image." Shot on digital with a glorious cast of non-actor volunteers, this film points to the dreams of cinema and one projectionist whose obsession turned the dreams into a nightmare.

PG-13

                   BEST TV PILOT

               BEST SHORT FILM 

 Reflector (26m, U S A)  dir. by Dave Hill

Taking place in 1977, an African police unit is waiting around in the desert, bored. A call over the radio saying that the captain's brother has been killed interrupts their day. Dan and Sara, American missionaries to South West Africa, have a weekend off. Dan is an amateur astronomer and brings Sara along to see 'an occultation.' Their driver doesn't show up, so they decided to walk along the desert road.

After a while, they stumble upon a car with a dead African man next to it. They take the car and they continue their journey. Out of nowhere, they run into Dan's friend Jake. Jake has also come to Africa to see the 'occultation,' but without telling Dan. We also find out that Dan used the mission trip as a way to pay for his trip to Africa. Sara is upset at this news. They hear the African police vehicle in the distance. Jake suggests they leave the car, Dan follows, but Sara hides under the car. The troops search the car, but find nothing.

Dan, Jake, and Sara continue their journey, and Dan finally explains that by seeing the 'occultation,' they'll be the first to count all the rings of Uranus.  Running out of time, they run up a rocky hill, and set up their telescopes. They end up seeing all 13 rings.  The next morning though, the police officers find them sleeping in their car, order them outside, and haul them away. Their discoveries are never reported.

       BEST  SHORT DOCUMENTARY




 

Abandoned in Guatemala: The Failure of International Adoption Policies

 (20m, Guatemala, U S A)  dir. by Paul Feine

"Abandoned in Guatemala: The Failure of International Adoption Policies" is a film about the promise of international adoption and the sad reality that international adoptions around the world are decreasing, largely due to the influence of UNICEF. It's also a film about a privately run system that worked and a state-run system that is failing. Most of all, 'Abandoned in Guatemala' is a film intended to raise awareness about international adoption in the hope that more abandoned children will be placed with loving families, wherever they happen to live. 


      BEST  FEATURE DOCUMENTARY


 

The Rescuer, 70 MIN. USA  Dir .by Leo Grillo

Sometimes wonderful and unexpected things happen when you set out to make a documentary, and this is very much the case with The Rescuer, which began as a 27-year chronicle of the activities of Leo Grillo, a man who loves animals, perhaps too much. In 1979, Grillo, an up-and-coming young Hollywood actor driving to a location shoot, spotted a bedraggled abandoned dog wandering under the broiling desert sun. Leo couldn't resist stopping to pick up the animal and subsequently nursing it back to health. This experience opened Leo's eyes to a shocking problem: annually, millions of pets are tossed out and simply left to die in America's wilderness. Almost before he realizes it, Leo has found and taken in 35 more abandoned dogs, saving them from certain death. Leo formed a nonprofit organization called D.E.L.T.A. (Dedication and Everlasting Love to Animals), which eventually grows to include a 94-acre 'supershelter' housing over 1500 abandoned dogs and cats, the largest organization of its type in the world. A controversial figure, Leo Grillo in The Rescuer becomes obsessed with the tracking of one specific dog and her family over a 2 year period which changes his life in an unexpected way.
