YDA 2011 Winners

23 06 2011

Up-and-coming director Hanna Maria Heidrich is the Queen of Cannes after scooping the Special Jury Award at the shots/cfp-e Young Directors Award.

Hanna – winner of Special Jury Prize with cfp-e president Francois Chilot and Manfred Vogelsanger.

The ceremony at the Palais Stephanie in Cannes was a celebration of new talent, with Heidrich leading the pack. Her short film We Miss You for WWF was awarded joint first prize in the European Branded Short category as well as the Special Jury Prize.

From spec ads to music videos and web films, 2011 was a bumper year for entries, according to shots editor-at-large Lyndy Stout. “With over 350 entries we were viewing work for days but the shortlist reflects the amazing fresh new directing talent, original ideas and craft from new directors all over the world which like cream rises to the top.”

It’s a sentiment shared by Cfp-e president Francois Chilot who agreed that the standard of entries this year was particularly high, especially in the the filmschool and non-European music video categories.

The winning films will be shown in shots 131, but in the mean time, here’s a rundown of last night’s winning entries:
