The prize for Best Documentary was awarded to Simon Direen, director and producer of A Life Together. Simon is now eligible for consideration in the OSCARS® Documentary Shorts category.

This year’s selection of 100 Australian shorts featured 40 films with female directors and 56 with female producers, compared to figures released by Screen Australia showing that in 2015 women account for only 16% of directors and 32% of producers in traditional film.
