Deus Campur Film Festival screening and awards

Forget…Lights, camera action, we prefer…budget, edit, project!The first ever Deus Campur Film Festival was held last night and quite the crowd gathered to watch the premiers of the top 10 entrant's short films. The sky may have opened up, scrapping our plans for an outdoor event, but the screen was shimmied inside and the Deus showroom was a more than accommodating theater. From the youth section all the way through to the open class, quality, dedication and craftsmanship seemed abundant. There was defiantly no short of creativity, especially when it came to including our compulsory list of objects within the movies. But at the end of the night there could only be three winners. (one for each class) The judges had deliberated for days before hand and only decided the prize winners on the night itself. The "Best Youth Film" went to 'The Easy List' - A great little comedy thought up by a posse of young un's currently at school here in Bali. The "Best Film" award went to 'Fixed for Fun' - Made by a group of bicycle riders all the way from Jogjakarta, they even missioned down on the bus to be present for the screening. Their film showed a true sense of love for their surroundings, along with an unequaled passion for cycling and a great feeling of comradery within the crew…Well done guys! The "Peoples Choice Award" went to 'D-Day' - Probably one of the funniest movie clips to come out of Bali. This one had the whole crowd in laughter, and showed a quick excerpt of what life is like in Bali. Overall the response and entry's were amazing and we hope to see everyone and more for next years event!
