The results are in!
Brickworld Chicago 2018 was an incredible success, bringing together Lego fans from across the United States - and the world - together for an incredible five-day event. We reported on the announcement of the Brickworld Film Festival
earlier in the year and awaited to hear the results. Brick à Brack moderator Chris (@chris_gbp
) was there at Brickworld to report on the festival itself. With twenty-three entries
playing and countless attendees viewing the films throughout the convention, the festival culminated on Saturday evening with an hour's worth of public viewing and an audience vote.
Two award categories - one for the Best Film from the convention attendees
and one for the Best Film from the international brickfilm community
- were presented at the festival. Twenty films were entered into the running and were enjoyed by the audience. After each film was screened in a private hall within the convention center, ballots were passed out and the audience voted on their favorite films.
"We had a great film festival at Brickworld Chicago this year," film festival coordinator David Pickett commented. "We're really happy to be one of the longest-running brickfilm festivals in North America and that we are able to share the art form with the AFOL community and the public."
Without further ado, the winners of the Brickworld Film Festival are ...Best Film - Attendee: Best Film - International:
This was the seventh year of the Brickworld Film Festival - with two years of international entries - and the event will continue again next year. Congratulations to all of the winners! Be sure to check out their entries
and support these fantastic animators.
