Sea­sons

Sea­sons,” directed by Haowei Hu of the United States, was named Best Ani­mated Film on Sun­day at the Lon­don Film Awards.

Sea­sons is a sur­real motion graph­ics ani­ma­tion based on the chang­ing sea­sons. Begin­ning with spring, the richly hued illus­tra­tions in this work come alive as they trans­form in color and rhyth­mic tempo to reveal the full sea­sonal spectrum.

The Lon­don Film Awards is London’s pre­miere film awards body, which cel­e­brates and awards the work of inde­pen­dent film’s best and bright­est con­tem­po­rary film­mak­ers and screen­writ­ers span­ning the globe.

Our 2012 com­pe­ti­tion marks an incred­i­ble year for the Lon­don Film Awards. LFA received sub­mis­sions rep­re­sent­ing some of the world’s most tal­ented film­mak­ers,” said awards exec­u­tive direc­tor Joey Paulos.

After care­ful con­sid­er­a­tion, we have dis­tilled the very best of this year’s entries,” said Joey Pau­los, Exec­u­tive Direc­tor of the Lon­don Film Awards. “We are hon­ored to cel­e­brate the tal­ent and com­mit­ment of each of these accom­plished artists.”

The Grand Jury Prize was pre­sented to Beauty and the Breast, directed by Lil­iana Komorowska of Canada. She also won the award for Best First-Time Direc­tor. A first-time doc­u­men­tary film­maker offers a com­pelling insight into the dev­as­tat­ing real­ity of breast can­cer, as seen through the eyes of sev­eral female patients help­ing demys­tify the deadly dis­ease while paint­ing poignant and often humor­ous intimate.

The Spe­cial Jury Prize was pre­sented to Womble, directed by Robert Pirouet of the United King­dom. Years have passed and what’s changed? Jim Labey sits wait­ing in the cor­ri­dor of his old school wait­ing for a job inter­view. The prob­lem? The other side of the desk is Piers Mourant, an old class­mate of Jim’s… and Pier’s remem­bers everything!

The Best Fea­ture Film was pre­sented to Pechorin, directed by Roman Khrushch of Rus­sia. It’s based on the Russ­ian clas­sic Mikhail Ler­mon­tov novel The Hero of Our Time. All events shown as they are reflected in the mind of the dying hero as a series of irrev­o­ca­ble mis­takes and inter­preted anew: it is either recon­sid­er­a­tion or repentance.
