The winners for each category:


 
 


BEST FEATURE FILM

mindie-winners-june2016-poster-Heroyna

Heroyna

by Alejandro Solórzano Garibaldi, Mexico 2016

King and Queen are robbers, addicts and -above all- lovers. Together they form the center of the universe. After a life of failure and loneliness, they are faced with the opportunity of one last, great crime that could buy their way to freedom. Now, they will stop at nothing in their pursuit of wild, violent euphoria; a paradise where they can be away from the world, alone with each other.


 
 


BEST FEATURE DOCUMENTARY

mindie-winners-june2016-poster-Liberty & Slavery

Liberty & Slavery: The Paradox of America’s Founding Fathers

by A. Troy Thomas, USA 2016

Our Founding Fathers were yearning for a nation of individual liberty. But, the origins of America were already overflowing with a deep-seeded paradox; our Founding Fathers were rallying the colonists to liberty, while simultaneously owning slaves.


 
 


BEST SHORT NARRATIVE & DOCS

mindie-winners-june2016-poster-Corpse Remover

Corpse Remover

by Alessandro Farrattini Pojani, United Kingdom 2016

Corpse Remover takes a bit of a grim look into the year 2048 when taking a life, or at least asking the government if you can, is legal. We follow Sam whose job it is to clean up the mess as he finds himself muddled in the messiest business of all, juggling a marriage and a promising career all at once. Starring up-and-coming British actors Matthew Coulton and Ben Woods, Corpse Remover is about as unexpected as the 150% successful Kickstarter campaign we ran to make it.
