Anthony Green scoops Shoot! “Emerging Director of the Year” Award for “Best Short Film”

• An inspiring competition between seven emerging film-makers to Shoot! a collection of short films
• Winner of “Best Short Film” and “Best Screenplay” announced at the exclusive Shoot! Screening Event in Berlin
• All six short films available to download for free from PlayStation®Network and ShortsTV

Berlin, Monday 16th February 2009: Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) is pleased to announce the Shoot! “Emerging Director of The Year” awards for “Best Short Film” and “Best Screenplay”. Both awards were announced at an exclusive screening event held in Berlin to coincide with the prestigious 59th Berlin International Film Festival. Additionally, all six films were viewed by PLAYSTATION®3 users across Europe in the ‘Home’ Theatre – PlayStation®Network’s 3D, online virtual space. All six films will continue to be screened in the ‘Home’ theatre over the coming weeks.

The winners are:
• Shoot! “Emerging Director of the Year” for “Best Short Film”: The Dreaming by Anthony Green
• Shoot! “Emerging Director of the Year” for “Best Screenplay”: Bitter by Joel Wilson and Jamie Campbell (screenplay by George Kay)

Six exceptional short films were screened as part of the Shoot! Finale, where they were viewed and judged by a panel of film professionals including Cannes-winning actress Arta Dobroshi and Magnolia Pictures’ Tom Quinn.

Anthony Green commented, “Jerry Bruckheimer believed in me to do a unique film. For that, I’m eternally grateful.”

Tom Quinn, Judge of Shoot! and Head of Acquisitions, Magnolia Pictures said, “SHOOT! is very much a renaissance endeavour: the fusing of vibrant up and coming auteurs with established industry heavyweights, to produce short formats conducive to both Sony handheld PSP viewing as well as big screen adulation. From the Jerry Buckheimer Executive Produced winning film DREAMING, a meditative and experiential triptych, to the cutthroat wit of the winning script, BITTER, a showdown between a father and his daughter's elderly lover executive produced by Michael Winterbottom, this really is one of the most exciting competitions short cinema has on offer. Watch out Hollywood, event organizers PlayStation and Shorts International have figured out a short cut to quality content well worth taking.”

Shoot! was created in 2008, when six up-and-coming directors were handpicked by PlayStation® and Shorts International to write and shoot a short film. Directors were then paired with six of the world’s finest film-makers, including UK director Michael Winterbottom (Joel Wilson and Jamie Campbell – Bitter) and Hollywood producer Jerry Bruckheimer (Anthony Green – The Dreaming), who mentored them along the way as executive producers. The brief was simple - to shape their film with one of six words: Share, Create, Discover, Connect, Play or Challenge – the words that capture the essence of PlayStation.

Here’s the full Shoot! line up:

Country, Director, Film, Executive Producer, Word

UK, Joel Wilson & Jamie Campbell, Bitter, Michael Winterbottom, Discover
France, Christophe Perie, Citizen Hero, Jan Kounen, Create
Germany, Uwe Flade, Prison Food, Marc Rothemund, Play
Spain, Xavi José, Hands, Montxo Armendáriz, Share
Scandinavia, Klaus Thymann, 8.3 Minutes, Thomas Vinterberg, Connect
International, Anthony Green, The Dreaming, Jerry Bruckheimer, Challenge

Available to download for free from PlayStation Network, all six films were viewed by audiences across Europe following an exclusive premiere via PlayStation Network – and later for the general public on Shoot!’s official site and Shorts International’s broadcast channel, ShortsTV. Shoot! allows PLAYSTATION®3 and PSP™ (PlayStation®Portable) fans and film-lovers to view content in a totally new, unique and free way.
