The international film festival presented films from over 74 countries. More than 4,500 entries were received, with only 10%-15% winning an award.

Established more than 50 years ago, it is the oldest independent film and video festival in the world. It evolved into a competitive festival in April 1968, with its mission and vision being to recognise and honour outstanding creative excellence in film and video.

SIGNAL2NOISE won a Platinum Award for its ‘Challenge Your Ambition’ recruitment film produced for premium drinks giant, William Grant & Sons.

The company also won a Gold Award for its ‘Total Edradour-Glenlivet’ documentary-style film for oil and gas operator Total.

‘Challenge Your Ambition’, was produced in partnership with brand and digital agency Hampton Associates and promoted careers within William Grant & Son’s packaging and supply chain divisions. It features a diverse range of people and activities across the business and was created as part of a wider online recruitment campaign.

‘Edradour-Glenlivet Legacy’ explains the scope, challenges and importance of a gas-condensate development. It was filmed over two years in the UK, Norway, France and offshore West of Shetland. The film was well received by Total and their partners.

Jamie Baikie, senior producer at SIGNAL2NOISE picked up the awards at the festival’s gala dinner in Houston. He said: “We’re thrilled and extremely proud to have won these much-coveted awards. To have SIGNAL2NOISE join the high-profile ranks of WorldFest Remi Award Winners is an exceptional accomplishment for the team.”
