Who won awards?
1st Prize: Secret of Goat – Park Bench – A Woman and a Man live in a cabin in the woods. They are in love. One autumn they buy a goat. Something starts happening to the Woman and Man, they begin to change… and so does their love.
2nd Grand Prize: Odokuro – Aurelio Voltaire – The skeleton of a rat-monkey comes to life in a room full of cursed objects in this Gothic tale with a sci-fi twist. Narrated by electro-Goth, New Wave icon, Gary Numan, who did “Cars” (what could be more appropriate for a drive-in movie festival?).
3rd prize: Statue – Olga Wilhelmine - A lonely, ‘living-statue’ street performer in the French Quarter of New Orleans tries to win the heart of a nearby street musician. Check out 219 Records for more of Olga’s many excellent projects.
4th prize: Another Dress, Another Button – Lyn Elliot - The spare buttons have a field day on the dresser top. The spare button saver talks about why she does it, and how it makes her feel. A stop-motion animation that explores the plight of the spare buttons: carefully saved, but never used.
5th prize: Trailer Park Jesus – Sean Gerowin – Inspired by a true misadventure, a college student bargains his way home with a sheet of acid as he becomes stranded at a trailer park in rural Mississippi. Another remarkable award winner this year from Louisiana (the other LA). Reviews.
Audience Choice: Doctor Glamour – AndrewJones – A genius scientist contacts another dimension to save the woman he loves, summoning a flamboyant rock n’ roll superhero. (Note: Brainwash fans may remember the excellent movie “Frank DanCoolo: Paranormal Drug Dealer“, also by Andrew Jones, from our 2010 festival).
