Vancouver Festival awards

Alan Franey, Director of the Vancouver International Film Festival and the new Vancouver International Film Centre, today announced the following award winners:


The People’s Choice Award for Most Popular International Film goes to Rahu Mihaileanu’s LIVE AND BECOME (Israel/France).

This year the voting for the Federal Express Award for Most Popular Canadian Feature Film is Julia Kwan’s EVE & THE FIRE HORSE (British Columbia).


Jurors Kristine Anderson, Matt Henderson and Josh Siegel gave the National Film Board Award for Best Documentary Feature to A PARTICULAR SILENCE by Stefano Rulli (Italy).

The jury stated: “It is a truism to say that music, poetry and film have the power to heal, but rarely is this demonstrated with the kind of conviction and love that Italian filmmaker Stefano Rulli expresses in A Particular Silence. Intelligent and restrained, sensitive and often humorous, A Particular Silence brings us one humble step closer to the solitary world of autism.”

China’s Liu Jiayin won the Dragons & Tigers Award for Young Cinema for her film OX HIDE. The award, which includes a $5,000 prize, is sponsored by Brad Birarda. The jury was comprised of: David Bordwell (USA), Li Cheuk-To (Hong Kong) and Gerwin Tamsma (The Netherlands). Amongst other virtues, the jury praised OX HIDE for showing how formal experimentation can coexist with engrossing human drama and powerful emotion.

The jury included three Special Mentions, in alphabetical order, they are Shibutani Noriko’s BAMBI ♥ BONE (Japan), Shin Jane’s SHIN SUNG-IL IS LOST (South Korea) and Wanma-caidan’s THE SILENT HOLY STONE (China/Tibet).

Sean Garrity wins the Citytv Western Canada Feature Film Award for his feature LUCID.

Garrity’s film earned praise from jurors Nathaniel Geary, Liam Lacey and Timothy Taylor, as “a work of polish and complexity, exploring the relationship between dream states and reality.” The award, sponsored by Citytv, is accompanied by a cash prize of $12,000.

The BRAVO!Fact Award for Best Young Western Canadian Director of a Short Film

Jamie Travis wins the BRAVO!Fact Award (for Best Young Western Canadian Director of a Short Film), for PATTERNS, which was praised for “its satiric use of film language to create an apparently logical universe that is simultaneously absurd.” The award, sponsored by BRAVO!Fact, is accompanied by a $5,000 cash prize.
