It was another stellar year for shorts; the standard gets better every Flatpack, and although it was a mighty hard job singling out a selection of the best, here's what we, you, and our judges deemed the crème de la crème. The films that took home this year's oversized allen keys are:

FLATPACK SHORT FILM AWARD Judged by Mari-Liis Rebane (Programme Director, Animated Dreams, Estonia) and Will Anderson (BAFTA-winning animator, The Making of Longbird): Winner (£1000 AWARD): EMERGENCY CALLS (dir. Hannes Vartiainen & Pekka Veikkolainen)"...a chilling film which stayed with me.  Cleverly mixing documentary recording with abstract imagery, the film shows how fragile humankind is." Will Anderson

Honorable Mention: I THINK THIS IS THE CLOSEST TO HOW THE FOOTAGE LOOKED (dir. Yuval Hameiri & Michal Vaknin)

FLATPACK WTF AWARD Judged by Team Flatpack Winner: EAGER (dir. Allison Schulnik)

FLATPACK AUDIENCE AWARD Winner: 365 - ONE YEAR, ONE FILM, ONE SECOND A DAY (dir. The Brothers McLeod)
