OIFF Music Video Challenge Winners

Some big names in Ottawa’s music scene achieved success last night at the Ottawa International Film Festival. Deservedly, Fevers, Flight Distance and Hilotrons all tied for first place in the Music Video Challenge at Babylon on the closing night of festivities. MC Devin Atherton hosted the event as it featured some of the finest artists in film and music that Ottawa has to offer. Fevers had their video for ‘Passion is Dead (Long Live Fashion)’ screened, which was directed, produced and edited by Shooter McNally. Flight Distance also used the night as a premier of their new video ‘Blanket Party’ off their sophomore album Bad Information released in 2011 and directed by Edward Fawcett. The Hilotrons (Kelp Records), who first released their self-titled album in 2003, received praise for their new video for ‘Emergency’ – a video which I have yet to find online, but will post as soon as it surfaces. Congratulations to all the participants, this years crop will leave us waiting in suspense for next year’s OIFF Music Video Challenge.
