Palpitations of Dust Wins Best Experimental Short Film for Prince of Prestige Academy Award, & is Selected for Screening at Hollywood Dreamz International Film Festival, Action on Film Festival, & Near Nazareth Festival

August 2017: Ann Huang’s film Palpitations of Dust won Best Experimental Film for the Prince of Prestige Academy Award for 2017! 

Huang says that her debut film is solely based on her pure lyrical poems. That her biggest challenge of adapting her poetry from page to big screen was to render a narrative arc from non-lineal surrealistic poems. “Chance, happenstance, and energy of synchronicity are the centerpiece of this project, interweaving and juxtaposing frail humane emotions such as love, longing, and belonging.”

Films submitted to the Prince of Prestige Academy Award were nominated through a selection committee. The top scorers were reviewed by the festival jury and winners were announced on Saturday, July 29, 2017. More information about the Prince of Prestige Academy Award as well as other film categories and nominees can be viewed on the PAECA website as well as on IMDB
