As some may recall. Scifipulse hosts its own movie award for best Science Fiction short film. It’s an award that is given out at the KWC Film Festival, which is held annually in Kentucky. Of course, this year’s award’s were delayed due to Covid 19. But the awards ceremony and Festival went ahead virtually over the weekend of the 14th November 2020.
Like last year. The competition for the award was stunning with quite a lot of entries. But the short film ‘Blake’, which is written and directed by David Busch managed to take first prize with a very cute time travel fantasy about getting to spend more time with a family pet, which has sadly died. It’s a film that will likely appeal to cat lovers everywhere and has a running time of 12 minutes.
As is now a tradition. We’ll be posting an interview with the SciFiPulse Award winner in the next few days. But before that, you’ll be able to read reviews of the runners-up movies as well as the winning movie as we build-up to the interview feature. The two runners up were ‘Fatherless’ by William M. Crouch, which is another fun time travel story, and ‘Unfulfilled’ by Rodney Kimbangu, which is a pretty decent fantasy film about an aspiring writer.
We here at SciFiPulse.net congratulate all the winners for making the judging particularly tough this year. All the films entered in the Science Fiction category were all very different stories with a unique appeal and some great cinematography, writing, and soundtracks. It was very difficult to choose the top three in this category.
So congratulations to David Busch for making perhaps the sweetest time travel story ever. A story about a man that uses time travel to spend one last day with his cat has to be perhaps one of the cutest ideas for a story that we have come across in recent years.
We’d also like to congratulate the two runners up for what were two great films with lots of interesting ideas. Look out for our reviews for all these movies in the next few days.
