What it Feels Like was a winner in the Self Determination Category.
Meanwhile Dix Pix won in the Free Form Category. Dix Pix had previously been nominated and shortlisted for awards at several film festivals, but this is the first win. This is sixth award that What it Feels Like has picked up and I am so pleased that both films are still screening several years after they were completed.
Synopsis – Prosopagnosia is a story of identity that uses expressive animation to investigate intimacy, communication and memory.
Prosopagnosia is face-blindness and as a means of understanding this neurodiverse behaviour, the contents of a memory box are explored. Sketchbooks, photographs and diaries are intricately unraveled to tell a unique and personal story.
I’ve recently created a new short animated documentary called Dix Pix.
It looks at queer identity, loneliness and vulnerability.
I am currently submitting the film to film festivals and plan to fully release it online soon.
Information on Dix Pix can be found here.
