The Cinema Travellers: Shirley Abraham, Amit Madheshiya
Juror Pamela Young said "Arthur, Karim and I were privileged to be inspired, educated, and encouraged by this year's impressive documentary entries, all of which demonstrated a commitment to excellence by filmmakers who took audiences into the worlds of surfing, drug addiction, samurai's, LGBT rights, and family history. One film in particular transported us on a lyrical exploration of cultural and technological transitions, where the analog nature of celluloid film projection crumples to make way for a digital future."
