BITS 2017: Wrap-Up

I was very busy at the Blood in the Snow Film Festival this year, as I was both covering the festival as media, while also having a short film in the line-up. Thankfully, I managed to make it through the double duty and this was indeed the biggest edition of the festival so far. Things have really grown for a festival I first began covering in 2013 and I am sure it will keep getting bigger.

Here are my favourite films from the festival, along with the official award winners.

Top Five Feature Films

  1. Fun
  2. The One I Adore
  3. The Hag

Top Three Short Films (Pre-Film)

  1. Jason
  2. Scraps
  3. Human Cattle
