Il Nostro Ultimo (Our Last)

by Ludovico Di Martino, Italy 2015

“Our Last” is the story of two brothers, Fabrizio and Guglielmo, and of their lives full of distractions. These are what stop them from satisfying their ill mother’s wish to go on one last trip with the hole family to the beach.


 
 


BEST FEATURE DOCUMENTARY

BEHIND THE COVE

by Keiko Yagi, Japan 2015

Negative media coverage on Japan about the never-ending whaling issue prompted first-time documentary filmmaker Keiko Yagi to find out more about the topic. With no budget, limited experience in filmmaking, no fluency in English, but armed with a video camera and a strong desire to find out about the truth of the matter on whaling, I started my research.

The Last Days of Hustling

BEST STUDENT FILM

The Owls

by Natalia Bougadellis, Greece 2016

This story, may sound a bit far-fetched, but unfortunately the family being portrayed in the film could be the family next door. Hopefully, we will manage to startle you at first, take you out of your comfort zone, so that you can take a step back and look at things from a different, fresh angle and reconsider several concepts that may now seem certain and clear to you.


 
 


BEST SHORT FILM

That Little “Drive” Thing

The young man will use this time to announce an important revelation.

mindie-winners-july2016-poster-Art Vessel

Art Vessel

by Mateo Vengoechea, USA 2014

As Miami grows as an art hub, we have put ourselves smack dab in the middle of this movement by interviewing and portraying both up and coming and established artists in the Miami scene.
With interviews from nationally known artist-entrepreneur Gabriel Gimenez to New York fashion visionary Jeff Staple, ‘Art Vessel’ looks to put the right eye on Miami art with a visit to Miami’s Art Basel, its murals and some of New York’s best street art
