The winners of the fund, which has been running since 2009, will be given £ 40,000 ($ 55,000) to spend on developing their short films. The Irish author Denise Deegans The barber, which retells the birth story through the eyes of a seven-year-old girl, won the Comedy Award, and the Finnish newcomer Silva Kuusniemi took home the Drama gong Sharp on environmental activists in Finland. Meanwhile, British-based Eva Edo won the Lucy Scher Award for Motherly, a story of protection and family, while other finalists were Tom Cozens and Lewis Rose. The judges included BAFTA-winning comedy writer Gbemisola Ikumelo and FilmFour director Charlotte Bogard Macleod. Pitch director Luke Walton said the judges “could see the relevance of issues in both of our winning concepts – homelessness and environmental care – but also chose these two especially for the way they had developed their stories.”
