Sony announces winner of global #NoLimits short film competition


Australian Josh Cable is the global winner of the Sony #NoLimits PXW-FS5 short film competition, for his short film 72. Cable has won a brand new Sony PXW-FS5 camcorder, while five regional winners were recognised for their work, from more than 600 entries. After a judging process based on community votes and a final jury round, 72 was announced as the global winner in a live webinar hosted at Pinewood Studios.

Sony’s exclusive competition set out to celebrate the creativity and spirit of content creators everywhere, under the theme of “no limits’, with a grand prize of a brand new PXW-FS5 up for grabs. Entrants from around the world submitted their short films of up to two minutes in length via YouTube, using the tag #NoLimits. The top ten most-liked videos from each region were then presented to local Sony Independent Certified Experts, who each nominated an overall regional winner to enter the global final. After careful deliberation the final jury of global industry experts selected 72 as their most worthy winner. The film gracefully explores a 72 year-old athlete reflecting upon himself, his career and his attitude.

In addition to 72, the five remaining regional winners were all recognised for their talent by Sony. The runners up were: Benjamin Cotton’s Phone Addiction (EU/Russia); Cristhian Mendoza’s It’s Not Just a Box (Latin America); Alex Rodriguez’s Hong Kong Urban Tour
(South-east Asia); Sebin Xavier’s Mind Your Mind (India); and Diyab Basheer’s Filmmaker (MEA).

Watch 72.
