The second-annual Prism Prize award for the Canadian music video winner isÂ Emily Kai Bock for ArcadeÂ Fireâ€™s Afterlife. Emily received her award tonight, along with a cheque for $5000, at the Prism Prize Award ReceptionÂ in Toronto.
â€śEmily made some truly remarkable videos last year. ItÂ says something that two of Emilyâ€™s pieces were on the Top Ten Shortlist,” said Prism Prize Founder and Director Louis Calabro. “Ultimately, I think our jurors choseÂ Afterlife because itâ€™s thoughtful and well-paced, and because â€“ frankly â€“ it looks beautiful.â€ť
