2011 Short Supreme (ENG)

Out of the 27 short films that competed this year, the shorts that received a positive answer to the question “Would you watch this film for a 2nd time” 50% or more, were

Rank Title Director
15 DARKNESS’ SEED John Butler
14 THE HAPPY LIFE Minos Nikolakakis
13 TIMELARKS John Edwards
12 MERIDIAN Ryan Phillips
11 CEKANJE Daniel Beres
10 36EME SOUS-SOL PH Debies

6 LOVEC OBLAKOV MIHA KNIFIC
5 ONE MAN AND HIS DOG Jonathan Hopkins
4 ONCE UPON A TIME ON EARTH Ian Hothersall
3 THE ADJUSTABLE COSMOS Adam Duncan
2 LA TERRIBLE MALEDICTION Stephane Papet

The fact that those in the first quintet had smaller or larger doses of humour is a strong indication that the Greek Audience likes to laugh. The film the was crowned Short Supreme this year had humour, but also intense directorship and pulsing acting, and, yes, the Short Supreme award returned to Greece:

“Dead On Time” dir. Andreas Lambropoulos & Kostas Skyftas

…a movie from the Greek Network of Independent Filmmakers “CHAINFREE”

which we decided to present to the Audience this year. And we were right. And we thank the Audience for letting us know.

The directors of “Dead On Time” sent the following message:

“On behalf of our group “Yerwolves”, we thank SFF-rated Athens for a great event, and we thank the Audience for honoring us with the Short Supreme Award. We were rather pessimistic about any distinction of our film,  since the competition was fierce, against foreign films of high quality, material budgets and support from various sources. Our film had a budget of 100 euros max, and it would not have been completed if it wasn’t for the voluntary participation of everyone involved. We hope that after this very good beginning in SFF-rated, “Dead On Time” will experience similar success in the other festivals that have programmed it.”
