‘Infraction’ Wins at British Independent Film Festival

May 15, 2024

The MPI Original short film Infraction continues its remarkable film festival run. Just this past weekend, it earned two prestigious awards for Best Director and Best Short Film at the British Independent Film Festival in London, England.

Crafted in MPI’s Short Film Lab by the talented MPI filmmaker Timothy Blackwood, Infraction tells the compelling story of Terrance Lewis, an innocent man unjustly imprisoned for 21 years. Despite facing insurmountable challenges, Lewis maintains his steadfast work ethic and character. His unexpected friendship with a prison guard sets the stage for profound, life-altering ramifications.

Infraction was nominated for Best Narrative Short at the Pan African Film Festival and won Best Narrative Short at the Kansas City Film Festival; Best Narrative Short, the Audience Choice Award, and Best Original Score at the Anthem Film Festival; the Indie Soul Best Story Line Award in Boston; Best Actor in Richmond, Virginia (awarded to the lead Percy Daggs III); and the Audience Award for Best Short Film in Naples, Florida. More recently, the film was awarded the People’s Choice Award out of 70 films at the West Chester Film Festival.
