Shnit International Short Film Festival in partnership with the National Film and Video Foundation and AFDA is a wrap and the Audience Award went to The Suit. Director of The Suit Jarryd Coetsee said: “We are thrilled and delighted by the great honour of winning the Audience Award. Telling stories is a two-way street between the story-teller and the reader, listener or viewer. My primary motivation for telling stories through the magical medium of film has always been to arrive at a true and purest expression of the human condition through a mutual experience with the audience because we all have a vested interest in gaining a deeper understanding of ourselves. The Audience Award is confirmation that The Suit has connected to some degree in this way with the audience and for that I am grateful.”
