2020 Jury Member Announcement & PRINDIE Curated Collection: Charles Williams
Every week leading up to the official selection announcement and virtual festival presentation, we will be introducing 2020 jury members and films to be viewed for FREE by the artists we love and support in our new PRINDIE Curated Collection!
Without further ado, PRINDIE is honored to announce the 2020 jury member participation of filmmaker, Charles Williams!
Charles is a filmmaker born and raised in country Victoria, Australia, far from anything connected to filmmaking.
After more than a decade of filmmaking, his films have screened at over 150 of the world’s most prestigious festivals including Cannes, TIFF, Telluride, Clermont-Ferrand, Hong Kong, Rotterdam, SXSW, Busan, and MIFF. His latest short film All These Creatures was the winner of over 50 awards including the Palme d’Or at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival. He is currently developing his first feature film ‘Inside’, supported by Screen Australia and selected as part of TIFF’s 2019 Filmmaker Lab and Golden Globes HFPA 2020 Residency.
His short film All These Creatures won the GRAND JURY AWARD, BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY, BEST WRITING & BEST SOUND DESIGN at the 2019 PRINDIE Film Festival.
