Jalopnik Film Festival Announces 2015 Short Film Award Winner













The Jalopnik Film Festival is pleased to announce the audience award winner of this year’s short film competition: “Building Your Dream Ferrari is a Beautiful Thing” by Petrolicious. The film was one of 11 finalists that was selected by an elite panel of judges that included comedian and radio personality Adam Carolla, L.A. Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson, filmmaker Jeff Zwart and TV personality Spike Feresten.
Petrolicious is a site dedicated to producing written and video editorial about classic cars. According to a piece published by the Los Angeles Times earlier this year , Afshin Behnia and his wife, Kika Vigo-Behnia (the site’s creative director) have posted more than 120 original videos on YouTube and acquired a quarter-of-a-million subscribers since posting their first video in 2013.
"There's a reason why this is the second year in a row a Petrolicious video was featured at the festival, and it's that they've elevated the short car feature in such a way that they've set the standard for everyone else,” said Jalopnik Editor-in-Chief Matt Hardigree. “The Petrolicious style of video is so popular that it even inspired a parody film that was also a jury selection."
“Building Your Dream Ferrari is a Beautiful Thing” is currently available to watch on the Petrolicious YouTube channel.
Sponsored by Mazda, the 2015 edition of the Jalopnik Film Festival kicked off on Friday, September 25th at the Barker Hanger in Santa Monica, CA with an exclusive Ride & Drive experience, followed by a screening of “Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman,” a Q&A with director Adam Carolla and an after-party. The following day, Saturday, September 26th, consisted of a full day of screenings at The Theatre at Ace Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles. The program included classic films such as the original “Mad Max” and “Ronin,” as well as documentaries like “Being Evel,” “Steve McQueen: The Man and Le Mans” and "Havana Motor Club," which have been making their rounds on the festival circuit.
The Jalopnik Film Festival takes its name from one of the most popular automative enthusiast blogs on the web, which averages over nine million global uniques and is part of the Gawker Media Group family.
