The Winners of the Audience Awards’ 2018 Music and Dance Video Shorts Film Festival

October 11, 2018

To escape through some new stories with amazing music we asked the Audience Awards community to select their favorite music and dance video shorts. They delivered some emotional pieces that left us dancing to a new beat.

The winners were selected by the wonderful global audience and the Music and Dance video shorts panel consisting of Chris Vicente, the executive producer at  JBTV Music Television Studios and Crystal Mangano, a music producer at Legativity Music.

The first place winner of the Music and Dance video shorts is Land of the Fairies by Amiel Kestenbaum. In this beautifully handcrafted world, a young boy follows a fairy through magical worlds to explore the meaning of love, curiosity, and imagination.

The second place film is Sandwich De Lune by Larissa Pruett. People fall in love with their favorite sandwiches all over again in this delicious music video. Warning: watching this may or may not compel you to go make yourself a sandwich.
