We’re thrilled for MFF alum Annie Silverstein, whose short film SKUNK (one of MFF 2014’s Dramatic Shorts) has won first prize at this year’s Cinéfondation Selection at Cannes.

Annie Silverstein was in attendance at this year’s film festival with her producer Monique Walton and the two teenaged leads of the film.  We have also programmed work by Annie in 2012 and 2013; her previous shorts include SPARK and NIGHT AT THE DANCE.

Annie’s prize comes with a cash award of €15,000 and the guarantee that her first feature film will be presented at Cannes.
