“The Audience Awards gave me an opportunity to find out exactly how much support I had for my filmmaking career. I had no idea so many friends would take time out of their day to help me out, it was massively fulfilling. When the network you have, and the network you discover steps up to the plate on Audience Awards, you feel like you can accomplish anything” ~Miles Levin
Tommy came in second with a thrilling film where a young boy is rescued from the monster in his closet by a girl who faces his demons. Tommy by Alex Beaver is the winner of $200.
“I think the value of The Audience Awards for me and my film is that I get to share my film with others and also compete in different contests. Also I like that The Audience Awards is a great place to discover new films”~ Alex Beaver
In third place, winning $100 is Creamen. Creamen starts of as a cute and colorful short featuring ice cream, but quickly becomes a symbolic story about the global warming crisis as the ice creams are forced to confront devastating heat together.
“The Audience Awards is unique because films are picked by the audiences. Viewers can connect with the filmmakers online and filmmakers can engage their followers by sharing and commenting on the platform. In the typical festivals people don’t get to know much about the directors, having a profile at the audience awards gives us the opportunity to be out there, to connect with people, it is much appreciated. The main benefit from being at the Arizona Films Audience Awards is that you know your film will be awarded fairly, because it will be chosen by the people. Viewers are the ones that matter, films are subjective, audiences are diverse. Your audiences matter” ~Esther Casas Roura
