Best of FAFF 2011

Fundada are delighted to announce the Best of FAFF 2011.

The viewing audience at Fundada Artists' Film Festival 2011 voted for the best film of the festival and the winners are:

Gold FAFFTA: Sparrow+Castice (UK) - Sparrow & Castice Do Wakefield (2011)

World Première!
On Monday June 13th 2011 Sparrow+Castice went to Wakefield. One week later on Sunday 19th they returned to Birmingham. At some point between these two dates 10 films were made. These are those 10 films.

Congratulations also to runners up in second and third place:

Silver FAFFTA: Paul B Johnson (UK) - TV of Tomorrow...Today (2011)

The piece explores the formal mechanisms of our assimilation of the television media, particularly reality television. The focus remains on such mechanisms as editing, framing and graphics by removing the characters' faces, reducing them to puppets. This reductive approach gives the piece its childlike quality. The womb soundscape reinforces the concept of television as a pacifier for society.

Bronze FAFFTA: Gerard Freixes Ribera (ES) - The Homogenics (2010)

The same people living in the same houses. Uniformisation turns everything into stereotypes. The Homogenics family sitcom is an extreme example.

Congratulations to our FAFFTA award winning artists and thank you to everyone who voted.
