GERRY BRUNET MEMORIAL AWARD:
BEST BC SHORT
A socially anxious teen responds to a Craigslist ad for a glory hole. He strikes an unexpected connection with the figure behind the sheet. Feeling his anonymity threatened, the figure tries to course-correct. The teen resists until the figure snaps and abruptly ends the encounter. Feeling a strange connection to this faceless man, the teen returns. He pushes the figure to embrace what they both fear most and be vulnerable. The two men finally let their guards down; they share a moment of true intimacy.
ABOUT THIS AWARD
Our annual juried prize for the Festival’s best BC short film was established in 1997 in recognition of Gerry Brunet, a lifelong contributor to the arts and an early board member of Out On Screen. This award is generously supported by the Directors Guild of Canada-BC.
