Short Film


Our multi award winning directing collective, Bif, has won the prestigious Jury Award at the SIGGRAPH Computer Animation Festival for their short film, ‘Dix’.

'Dix' was chosen from hundreds of submissions from all over the world by an expert panel of jury members.  The entries were judged for computer-generated imagery, animation and storytelling and the winners announced at the event in New Orleans.  

'Dix' is a darkly comic short film showing the complexities of psychological and obsessive behaviour and is a mixture of live action and CG.  'Dix' has already scooped a raft of awards, among the most recent, the Shoot Young Directors Award and a win at the Clermont-Ferrand Short Film Festival.  

Bif are Jules Janaud, Fabrice Le Nezet and Francois Roisin.  'Dix' is part of The Mill's ongoing initiative to produce in-house short films and continuing commitment to develop talent within their growing animation team.
