. The Michael Powell Jury said, “The Michael Powell Award for Best British Feature Film goes to a feature we found very innovative in form and in which all those involved, from the director to the cinematographer and the actors, we believe to be very talented. The Jury recognise that the film was done with very limited funds and in a time when filmmakers are confronted with the challenge of making strong cinema with limited means, it is important for us to encourage new talent to keep creating innovative cinema.”

Coates said, “We set out to make a film that uses beauty and playfulness to speak about our deeper feelings and contemporary dilemmas, and we’re so very moved that it has connected with the festival and with audiences in ways that we barely dared to wish for.”
