Hi all, This is Elliott Dynes, the director of Washing Off Makeup. This was a project that was made with so much love. I've always been attracted to stories of empowerment in unfortunate situations because it's a struggle that's forced me to adapt to my surroundings since I can remember. This is the film's first win and to be chosen for the best student film brings me so much joy. Thank you and I'm so glad this film resonated with the judging committee the same way it has with me. Much love from Los Angeles, CA.


Thank you LA SUN FILM FESTIVAL for sending my work to the next level this means so much to me that Devil's Delight will have a chance to be read and seen.

Thank you

Bruce Smith.


Dear all, it is such an honour to be part of your festival. But to get the award for best director & in edit in short films is more than a gift. Thank you very much to support our voice against sexual abuse.

I´m so grateful for this honour - also in the name of the wonderful editor Ilya Gavrilenkow!

What a pity that I cannot be there - maybe next year.

What a motivation to continue in 2023 with my creativity ! I feel blessed !

Happy new year to all from Berlin

Sylvia Piechocki Gonzalez
