Congratulations to the twice Berlinale Winner Director Petros Silvestros who has just won the Best Thriller Award and Best Short Film of the Festival Award, at the BAFTA Qualifying Aesthetica Short Film Festival for his short film ‘’ A Confession’’. Aesthetica is the biggest short film festival in the UK and ‘’A Confession’’ was in competition with more than 300 short films. Silvestros had won earlier this year his second Crystal Bear for Best Short Film at the Berlin International Film Festival becoming the first ever director in Berlinale’s history to win this award twice.

A Confession was made from Andrea Allen’s winning screenplay from the UK Film Festival Script competition last year . The film was co-produced by our own Murray Woodfield and Irresistible Film’s Producer Matt Nelson.

This is the second year in a row that Silvestros has received this Best Short Film award becoming the first ever director to win this award twice in the 65 years history of Berlinale. Last year he won the Crystal Bear for his short film Mike becoming the first British director to ever win this award.

Producer Murray Woodfield says: “We are proud that the UK Film Festival continues to find scripts through their script competitions and match them up with established directors so that the script winners end up as writers of award winning films. Doing this two years in a row is fantastic.”

Director Petros Silvestros says: “Winning the Crystal Bear twice has been amazing experience and I cannot thank enough the UK Film Festival for not only providing an outstanding pool of talent and also being the instigator of these two projects.”
