The film can be viewed here. and will also screen during the festival at the O2 (April 26-29).
The film was shot in two days, and tells the story of a refugee running from his past.
The competition, backed by the Royal Borough of Greenwich and Ravensbourne, was open to three- to five-minute films on the theme ‘Story of Our Time.’
The other finalists for the competition were: Bonsai by Ben Williams; Two Doors Down by Scott Ward; The Story of Our Time by Sam Gould; and This Film Was Shot on Digital by Ian Waldron Mantgani.
Lumb said: “Extranjero is quite an experimental film. We wanted to comment on people you don’t really know about, and Extranjero was the result. Winning the competition is a dream for both us. As film geeks it’s amazing to be associated with Sundance.”
Trevor Groth, Director of Programming for the Sundance Film Festival, added: “The jury was struck by the high level of craft and ingenuity in the submissions. Filmmakers embraced the theme ‘Story of Our Time’ and created wonderfully diverse and entertaining films. Ultimately the jury selected Extranjero for its commanding cinematic storytelling and arresting visuals that offer an alternate perspective on an imperative global issue.”
