Sean Kelly

BITS 2017: Wrap-Up

I was very busy at the Blood in the Snow Film Festival this year, as I was both covering the festival as media, while also having a short film in the line-up. Thankfully, I managed to make it through the double duty and this was indeed the biggest edition of the festival so far. Things have really grown for a festival I first began covering in 2013 and I am sure it will keep getting bigger.

Here are my favourite films from the festival, along with the official award winners.

Top Five Feature Films

  1. Fun
  2. The One I Adore
  3. The Hag

Top Three Short Films (Pre-Film)

  1. Jason
  2. Scraps
  3. Human Cattle

Sean Kelly

About Sean Kelly -

Sean Patrick Kelly is a self-described ├╝ber-geek, who has been an avid film lover for all his life. He graduated from York University in 2010 with an honours B.A. in Cinema and Media Studies and he likes to believe he knows what he’s talking about when he writes about film (despite occasionally going on pointless rants).
