A short Israeli film wins First prize at the Brussels Short Film Festival

“Paris Al Amaym”, by the Israeli director Hadas Ayalon, won First prize in the international competition at the Brussels Short Film Festival, which ended on Sunday evening. The Israeli short film also won the public vote. These two awards come with a prize of 3,500 and 1,500 euros respectively. The jury prize went to “Tissina Mujo”, by the German Ursula Meier.

In the national competition, the First prize went to Jeoren Perceval for “August”. “Monstre”, by Delphine Girard, won the Brussels-Wallonia Federation prize. The public voted for “Tout va bien”, by Laurent Scheid.

In the Next Generation competition, open to school productions, “Yaar”, by Simon Gillard, won First prize in the national competition, and “Meanwhile”, by Irishman Stephen McNally, won the international competition.

More than 300 Belgian and foreign short films were shown in six different places in Brussels as part of the 18th Brussels Short Film Festival. Around 130 films were competing in the three competitions.

Before the closing ceremony on Sunday, the organisers counted 25,000 spectators this year, which was around what they were expecting.
