"Crash! Bang! Wallow?": NFB Announces Short Film Contest Winner

The National Film Board of Canada (NFB) announced that the winner of its 6th NFB Online Short Film Contest is Jon Dunleavy and Keith Wilson-Singer’s “Crash! Bang! Wallow?” According to a synopsis from the NFB, the winner is an “animated film that tells the tale of ex-Hollywood stuntman Larry LeTan and his fight to find a place in the modern world.” The UK filmmakers will receive a digital camera/HD video camera and a laptop computer.

The online contest generated more than two million views for the ten films in competition over the contest’s fourteen days, a monumental 1000% increase over last year’s numbers. The runners-up, from second place to fourth, are: “Love and Theft” by Andreas Hykade (Germany), “The Technician” by Simon-Olivier Fecteau (Canada), and “The Story of My Life” by Pierre Ferrière (France). The winning film can be seen on the NFB’s YouTube page until June 20 here. [Bryce Renninger]
