Hmm, been waiting for a National Winners thread to pop up, but in the absence of that I guess I'll just post here instead, to say... CONGRATULATIONS! to all the nominees and winners last night. Some good Christchurch representation in the awards too, which was great to see.

Must admit, the films that took out top honours were a surprise to me, but good on them anyway. Personally, the standout of the lot was FLICKER - just wow, so good in every way, beautifully crafted, and a genuinely scary 48HOURS film, now that's a rarity. And so I was a bit sad that it didn't get any awards-love.

Anyway, it was a lot of fun to watch (once some teething issues with the stream were sorted). Bring on next year!

Fun night at the Civic. None of my personal top three placed (Flicker, Mi Amigo Mandarina, Selfies & Poetries), but what are ya gonna do? In my case, probably punch one of the int'l judges later this year. I've done it before.

Super stoked for The Eh Team for their two big category wins for Chch, and for One Man Army's total domination of Best Bad Film. I think it's the best Best Bad Film I've ever seen in this competition.

And it needs to be said: wow, what a diverse, exciting and ambitious bunch of shorts the Grand Finalists were.

GF quality was amazingly high. I loved "Dead End Job" and can't stop watching it. That murderous Road Cone is the best animated villain I've seen since Feathers McGraw. I was shocked that it didn't place!

Likewise with "Flicker" - truly unsettling!

My top three, Mi Amigo Mandarina, Flicker, and A lesson in Probability. Watched the final live via stream, looked liked a great night. Some quality shorts this year. Looking forward to viewing them all again when they are all up online. Congrats to One man Army and The Eh Team. See you all next year, I'm looking forward to it already. Im turing into a bit of a 48Hour geek, cant get enough of it!

Well Done to all the winners. I would like to know if I am missing something though ? - as I have just watched the videos for the grand final winner & the runners up & according to my vimeo - they both show as over 7 minutes long- which was the time limit for the whole video and credits and therefore should they not have been disqualified ?

Most/All of the uploaded films include their 20-second intro and title card, which are not counted as part of the 7-minute-max film length. So that will presumably be what's adding to the length.

Thanks for your reply .The Lense Flare video started at exactly the title & did not include the required spare blank seconds at the end ???

The title slate does not count towards the 7 minutes. Nicely done signing up for an account solely to try to discredit the grand national champ though, buddy!
