New Film Makers 2005

The judges commented the best films were not about production values but were simple original stories compellingly told. These films were their final selections. See if you agree with their choices.

** Please note the asterisked films contain strong adult themes and language which some may find offensive and unsuitable for children. They will only be available post watershed (21.00) until 05.00. Other films have been modified with the film makers blessing to make them suitable for daytime viewing.

The winner
