BIAFF 1999 Awards Selection 2

A further selection of assorted award-winners in the 1999 IAC International Film and Video Competition, premiered at movie 99, held April 22-25, 1999, in Harrogate, Yorkshire.

1. GOD'S NOT LETTING ANY STRANGERS INTO HEAVEN
Marcus Harrison (London)
A fascinating and humorous look at the soap-box exponents at Speakers' Corner in London's Hyde Park. This really is a case of 'All human life is there' - both in the 'orators' and in their respective audiences/ hecklers! Well shot and edited to capture the marvellous atmosphere.

2. MY FRIEND WALTER
Oscar Riesel, LACI (London)
This was the last movie made by this multi-award-winner, who was born in Vienna in 1924. When he was 14, his school-chum Walter and he both left Austria, Oscar to England and Walter to Israel and never saw or heard from one another again. Sixty years on, and Walter saw Oscar's name in a paper, so got in touch; this movie is Oscar's autobiographical record of their get-together in Israel, including archive material, with his own voice-over. A fitting memory of an outstanding movie-maker.

3. UNEXPECTED HELP!
Jason Dainter (Herts)
A young boy (Fraser Ogilvie) has forgotten to do his homework and to tidy his room. However, when he goes to school, some plasticine figures emerge and do both for him! Neat animation by the 14-year-old maker for his first movie; he also made the models and did the editing!

4. CUPID'S ARROW
Nitrous Productions (Canada)
A lonely computer expert (Andrea Peters) decides to take a chance on love with the internet, only to find that being alone may have been better ... A very polished production, with excellent lighting, camera-work and sound, everything makes a positive contribution, not least the leading lady's performance. Produced and directed by Marco Marinelli. Widescreen format.

5. MOSCOW MEMORIES
Michael Gough, FACI (Sunderland)
Given its architecture and history, this must surely be one of the most fascinating capitals in the world. With good photography, excellent choice of music, plus an informative and well-delivered commentary, this movie creates a strong impression of what it must be like. Indeed, after seeing so many famous buildings and landmarks, together with the people, it makes one feel that one should go and see for oneself!
IAC Gold Seal, Best Documentary Award 1999; Guernsey Lily Very Highly Commended 1999

6. GELE TULPEN (YELLOW TULIPS)
Tony Jacobs (Belgium)
A young man (Johan Bruyndonckx) leaves prison and is met by his girlfriend (Daisy Naets). They get him some new clothes and the following day a group of their biker friends takes them to a civil wedding ceremony, after which comes a reception unlike any you've ever seen ... ! A most original idea, beautifully executed, with excellent locations, camerawork, lighting and editing combining to make an intriguing whole.
