The Dolphins

Some people ask why Festival699 gives out awards. No offense, but this is a stupid question.

Everyone likes to have their work recognized. What does the Dolphin Award symbolize? Have you ever seen a dolphin dive out of the water, so shiny, beautiful and free? We picked the dolphin because we wanted Festival699 to inspire these qualities in our young filmmakers.

Every director, every crew member, every actor who participates in Festival699 is like a dolphin diving out of the water for the first time.  What’s more beautiful than that?
