EntSun News/10986848
ST. LOUIS - EntSun -- Cinema at Citygarden – a biennial program organized by Cinema St. Louis (CSL) and funded by the Gateway Foundation – is pleased to announce the winners of its eighth juried competition. The competition was open to St. Louis-area filmmakers. Participants created short works that incorporated Nature as a key element.  "Many of this year's submissions spoke to the heart of Cinema at Citygarden, but the winners stood out with their clever meditations on nature, humanity, and whatever it is that lies in between," said Jessica Pierce, one of this year's jurors.

The three-person jury for the competition consisted of the following filmmakers and media professionals:
  • Maxamillion Foizey
  • June Kyu Park, aka Kyu
  • Jessica Pierce
The three winning works, whose filmmakers receive cash prizes, are the following:

First-Place Award ($1,500): Boundaries
Directed by Tsering Wangmo

Second-Place Award ($1,000): Belles of St. Louis
Directed by Jessica R. Adkins

Third-Place Award ($500): Lanes

The program will debut on Citygarden's video wall on Friday, May 26. The videos will play on a loop from 5-10 p.m. daily through June 30.

Cinema St. Louis will also screen the three competition winners as part of the Whitaker St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase, held July 21-30. Those films will then be eligible for consideration by the Whitaker St. Louis International Film Festival, held Nov. 9-19.

Among the most beloved public spaces in St. Louis, Citygarden is a two-block oasis of plants and trees, water and internationally renowned sculpture in the heart of downtown's Gateway Mall.  Opened in 2009, the garden is free and open to the public 365 days a year. It's been a hit since the day it opened, and the garden continues to attract visitors from all over the St. Louis area, the nation, and the world with its blend of beauty and serenity and fun. In 2011, it received one of the nation's most prestigious honors in urban planning, the Urban Land Institute's Amanda Burden Urban Open Space Award.

The video wall, on which the competition works will play, is set within a limestone wall that arcs across two blocks.
