Jury president Mark Denton says:”The Sharks Festival of Creativity is a truly unique experience. It wasn’t just about smiles, the creative work on show was stunning, including two of the best short films that I’ve ever seen. The talks were equally impressive, and the Sharks is definitely the friendliest creative festival in the world with loads of laughter and without even the merest hint of politics or bitterness.”
