Situation Vacant takes third place

Situation Vacant, our 2013 short film from the Edinburgh 48 Hour Film Project, took 3rd prize at the Palme Dewar event as part of the Aberfeldy Film Festival.

Following last years screening of our ultra short rom-com, ATM 3D, we were again a finalist in the Palme Dewar Film Competition which is sponsored by Dewar’s Whisky and organised by the nice folk of Heartland Film Society up in Aberfeldy.

There were seven finalists’ films screened at the Dewar’s Whisky Visitor Center in their stunning little auditorium. The films topics and styles were very varied from a documentary about nuns, through a second world war bombing drama to romantic comedies. Our film screened in 2D and was last in the sequence of films. Scoring of the films was decided via a mix of judges and audience vote.

The winning films in reverse order were:

Winner John McPhail has also recently won an unprecedented double award in this years Virgin Media Shorts – so we were definitely up against some stiff competition!
