Mel­bourne film­maker Natalie Van Den Dun­gen picked up $5000 as the pop­u­lar win­ner of Best Open Short Film, Hay­den Be­vis won Au­di­ence Choice with Un­spo­ken and James Walker was pre­sented with the Jury Prize, a $3800 film­mak­ing course with the New York Film Academy, for his short film For­ever.
