Aspen Shortsfest 2009 is a Wrap!

After five days of screenings and events, Aspen Film announced the competition winners of Aspen Shortsfest 2009. Roughly 2,500 entries were considered from over 60 countries, with more than 60 short films selected for Aspen Shortsfest from 21 countries for this esteemed, five-day Oscar®-qualifying International Competition.

Considered one of the world's premier international short film and video showcases for this trend-setting art form, Aspen Shortsfest's centerpiece, the International Competition, offered a lively, thought-provoking, and humorous selection of drama, comedy, animation and documentary. Over 40 filmmakers from the United States, Australia, and Europe traveled to Aspen to participate in public screenings and the Shortsfest school education programs. Audiences were not deterred by a strong spring snow storm or the economy, with sold out screenings and capacity audiences in both Aspen and Carbondale throughout the festival.

An esteemed jury of distinguished film professionals were present during the festival and awarded the following cash and prizes to award winning films in several categories. This year's jury included Denver Post Film Critic Lisa Kennedy, director Lewis Teague, writer/director/producer Robert Weide, and director Jon Bloom. The Aspen Shortsfest 2009 Awards Ceremony was held Sunday, April 5 at the Wheeler Opera House.
