Last year we held the first 1.4 Awards celebrating the world’s edgiest and cleverest filmmakers who we champion. It was GREAT.
We had top-end cinematic screenings of both new and established filmmaking shortlists. We also ate divine food, drank cocktails forever, partied with endless supplies of beer, wine and martini expressos, met old friends and made new contacts and talked and talked about what we all love – making films.
So we thought we’d do it all over again, with new twists and surprises of course, on May 4th 2017.
We’ll be opening the Call for Entries early in the New Year – with special early bird rates – so start mulling over your selection of your very best work from the past 18 months.
We are going to create a fabulous showcase made up of the sharpest, smartest, new as well as established directors’ work created since our last awards.
As many of those who were shortlisted or who were on the 1.4 long-list know, their names and work take a leap in recognition internationally by production companies, labels, agencies and of course your filmmaking peers.
Entries for the next 1.4 Awards will have even more exposure – the long list will be drawn up by 1.4, a jury will select the short list and the winners will be chosen by 1.4.
There are medals to be won! Gold and Silver! One Gold is for lifetime achievement the other five are for being fresh and fantastic.
