End of the Pier International Film Festival Award Winner

Kemal Yildirim was awarded Best Experimental Short Film for ‘fLicker‘ at the The End of the Pier International Film Festival Awards ceremony last night held at The Ritz at the Connaught Theatre, Worthing.

“I am so surprised I really did not expect this. I would like to thank Helen Clifford the actress who starred in the film. Thank you”.

Kemal was pleased to have two of his films ‘Wolf Cry‘ and ‘fLicker‘ officially selected to screen at such a prestigious festival. “I made my horror short ‘Wolf Cry‘ a good few years ago and ‘fLicker‘ I made last year with virtually no money it was also my first stab at the experimental genre, and to walk away with an award was the icing on the cake.” Up against some tough competition in the short horror film category Kemal was only too pleased to congratulate David Pope who won the award for Best Horror Short “Creeping Thirst”.

The awards ceremony was followed by the after party at the Burlington hotel at the seafront. “I had a fantastic week here at the festival in Worthing, having met some crazy filmmakers like myself in such a great place. Festival directors Bryan Gartside and Roz Anderson did a great job so I thank them and the team for recognising my work.”
