We’re very excited about RSSF’s inaugural Pushing Boundaries Award.
The new Pushing Boundaries category will celebrate the innovative application of live-action, design and animation technique to everything from top-end branded content to personal experimental pieces. Often sparse in dialogue but heavy on clever ideas and creativity the category highlights the very best work (under 5min in length) produced by the most original, artistic and technical minds in the industry.

Tickets can be booked online HERE or by calling 020 7930 3647
