Announcing Audience Awards’ Live Action Shorts Film Festival Winners

October 8, 2018

Every year, Audience Awards hosts the Live Action Shorts Film Festival open to any film that features real performers.  Here are the top three jury-selected winning films from this year’s 2018 Live Action Shorts Film Festival.

The winners were decided on by the global audience and the Live Action Shorts Film Festival jury panel including Gabriela Lugo, founder of Revek Entertainment and Sundance-winning producer; Dave Dickerson.

First place goes to L.A. Fadeaway by Meg Sutton in which a young female musician in 1977 Los Angeles must prove that talent speaks louder than noise when she finds herself in an industry full of sellouts.

The second place winner is GREEN by Suzanne Andrews Correa. In it, an undocumented Turkish pedicab driver unwittingly draws police attention, endangering his brother, his community, and himself.

In third place is EVOKE by Asia LeMasters. It explores how, despite how pure love can be, relationships don’t always end so perfectly. The evolution of Hailey and Emma’s relationship is explored through their collective memories as the girls retrace their times together. After their relationship ends, Hailey goes to a desperate length to be with Emma again.
