 “Too Rough” by the scottish Sean Lìonadh has won the First Prize at the festival. Fiction short film lasting sixteen minutes. The short film tells us the story of Nick who wakes up hungover and hysterical, along with his boyfriend Charile and must hide him from his own homophobic and dysfunctional family.

His short film “TIME FOR LOVE” made for the BBC, reached 16 million people online and won an award from the Royal Television Society, spawned a Ted Talk and a book, as well as inspiring an LGBT movement in Boston. “SILENCE”, his first experimental short film made for the festival circuit, and premiered in Italy at the 2020 Torino Film Festival. “TOO ROUGH” is his first fiction short film and has been a complete success at our International Film Festival.
