Depict - 90 second films shortlist

DepicT! 2005 - the short film competition for micro movies of under 90 seconds - proved hugely successful this year with a record number of over 320 entries from across the globe. The shortlist of 10 films has now gone live.

The final winner will be presented with their award and a cheque for 3000 pounds at the Brief Encounters Bristol International Short Film Festival (Wed 23 - Sun 27 November 2005). And new this year, the DepicT! 2005 winner and short-listed entries will be offered a full distribution deal with the Dazzle Short Film Label. In addition, digital media and design company Emak Mafu will offer a website and marketing package deal to the winner.

I haven't yet viewed all of the short-listed films, but so far I have particularly enjoyed 'Margalida Mirando (Margalida Watching)'. What do you think? When you've taken a look you can vote for your favourite film, either by texting the appropriate text code to 2472 (restricted to Orange customers only) or heading for http://www.lovefilm.com/ where you can vote online.

The winner of the Orange DepicT! 2005 Audience Award will be announced at Brief Encounters International Short Film Festival alongside the main DepicT! Award and will take home a top of the range mobile handset, other Orange prizes and a free 6 months membership to LOVEFiLM.COM
