A huge congratulations to David O. Gray and Kris J. Cummins who walked away with the Jury award at Cafe Flicker’s The BIG Flick 2019. We had excellent prizes from our sponsors including industry passes from Glasgow Film Festival and The Glasgow Short Film Festival, plus a weekend Red Camera hire from Futurist Digital.

The second winner of The Big Flick 2019 was writer/director Neil Boyle and Producer Claudia Docherty (who previously worked at GMAC Film and help run Cafe Flicker at the beginning of the year) with their film Coffin Walk, which won the Audience award.

The Audience award was sponsored by The Hb Film Festival who presented The Coffin Walk team with a free wavier code to the festival, along with a Weekend Pass.
