- Week-long online private screening of top films sees second annual Indy Film Library Awards draw to a close
- Short documentary Histórias de Lobos [Histories of Wolves] voted winner of Audience Choice Award
- Submissions opened for 2021/22 season of Indy Film Library’s annual contest
Over the last two weeks, Indy Film Library (IFL) has been streaming some of the best independent films it has received for review over the last year. The movies were selected on the basis of both their storytelling and the technical skills exhibited by their cast and crew, in a celebration of the best and brightest talents that the independent film industry has to offer.
IFL announced the winners of its 2021 festival last week – before screening them alongside those to receive special commendation via a private link on the IFL website. Viewers could not only see the best films from this year’s event there, they could also vote for their favourite.
Now, as that event also closes, IFL can announce that the Audience Choice Award for the Indy Film Library Awards 2021 was won by Histórias de Lobos [Histories of Wolves]. Agnes Meng’s short documentary claimed a decisive victory in the poll, taking 20% of the vote, ahead of runners-up Autumn Never Dies and Jack Fall – both on 10%.
In his review of Histórias de Lobos [Histories of Wolves] for Indy Film Library, Chief Editor Jack Brindelli said, “For a film which notes that it’s director was a first-time filmmaker at the time of its release, it is a startling indicator of what will surely be an incredible career to come.”
Following the completion of its 2020/21 season, Indy Film Library has re-opened for submissions, so if filmmakers have a piece which they would like professional, independent feedback on, they are invited to send IFL the finished product as soon as possible. More information can be found via the IFL website.
