Golden Hugo for Best Short Film
An annual, not for profit, competitive film festival organized to encourage better understanding between people and to make a positive contribution to the art of the moving image. ABOUT THE FESTIVAL Across countries, languages and classes, film has the power to provide us with a release, an escape, a window into new worlds and new possibilities. In 2013, we presented 125 feature films, including 20 feature-length documentaries, and 50 short subject films from more than 55 countries. Many of these films participated in competitive sections, where the highest honor is the Gold Hugo - a standard of excellence in the world of film and a true symbol of discovery. When we started the Chicago International Film Festival 50 years ago, we had one simple goal: to introduce Chicago and the world to new filmmakers, new stories and new points of view. We've shown first feature films by world-renowned directors like Martin Scorsese (USA), Peter Weir (Australia), Mike Leigh (UK), Gregory Nava (USA), Bertrand Tavernier (France), Jan Troell (Sweden), Tsai Ming-liang (Taiwan), Joe Swanberg (USA), and Wim Wenders (Germany). Last year I'm proud to say we stuck to that mission more than ever by showing over 40 films by first-time filmmakers. It's important to us that we're always learning, always seeing the world in a new way.
