Short British film 8ight limbs has won the prestigious (even if we say so ourselves) Total Film trailer award at the Icewhole.com Quarterly Awards Presentation.

The event took place on October 13, with the likes of John Hurt, Nick Berry, Chales Dance, Peter MacDonald, Sid Owen and Patsy Palmer attending.
