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.

BEST SHORT NARRATIVE & DOCS

BEST STUDENT FILM
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.

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
