The awards night will be celebrating the brightest lights in film, animation and motion design and rewarding those shortlisted in 15 categories including Best Feature, Best Director, Best Animation, Best Actor & Actress and the coveted Van d'Or for Best Film. Among the judges on this year's Van d'Or Jury are award-winning director Gurinder Chadha OBE (Bend It Like Beckham, Bride and Prejudice), Oscar-nominated producer Samantha Waite (Wish 143), Editorial Director of Little White Lies Matt Bochenski and a host of industry figures from across the film & media sphere.The 2012 Jury will make a decision based on a clearly defined set of criteria. The awards themselves will be hosted at Hackney House on the 14th September. The Hackney House is a sizzling new Olympic pop-up venue in the heart of London's creative hub of Shoreditch.  How exciting.

Come on Young Souls !!

Update: Well… Young Souls didn't win sadly, but... the film was actually nominated for 2 awards. Firstly the 'Best Music Based Film' and the second nomination for 'Best Cinematography' so we were all extremely pleased (especially Benoit Soler our brilliant Cinematographer) that the film was shortlisted in both categories. So great news! The event was great and the Cannes in a Van crew made a great party and ceremony.
