Filmmakers World Festival announces the winner of this year competition. From almost 100 countries participating, 20 countries were selected among the winners. The film festival chooses Dreams of the Last Butterflies directed by Zina Brown from USA as the best film of the festival.

Dreams of the Last Butterflies is a live-action 'dark faerie tale' short film with an urgent environmental message. A tale about the loss of butterflies in our world, and why they are disappearing, as told by the last Butterfly Queens themselves.
