The award for Special Visual Effects was given to Robert Legato, Dan Lemmon, Andrew R. Jones and Adam Valdez for The Jungle Book.
The British Short Film award went to Home directed by Daniel Mulloy, and produced by Scott O’Donnell, Afolabi Kuti and Shpat Deda. The poignant film tells the story of a stereotypical English family going on holiday, but with a twist that shines a light on the horrors of the refugee crisis.
