The five jury-prize winners of the $200,000 Focus Forward Filmmaker competition have been announced. The Grand Jury Prize of $100,000 will be announced at a live awards ceremony on January 22 at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. Full list of names and projects below.

The five jury prize winners are:

Callum Cooper (“Mine Kafon”)

Paul Lazarus (“Slingshot”)

In the Focus Forward "Short Films, Big Ideas" competition, participating filmmakers submit three-minute films featuring stories about people or organizations whose innovative efforts in medicine, computer science, robotics, engineering, green energy, or other fields of art and knowledge have had a significant positive impact on humanity. Last fall, a selection of 95 semifinalist competition films were made available online to a global audience through Vimeo; 10 audience favorites, based on a tally of public online votes, were announced on December 21.
