Arcade Fire - Afterlife

The second-annual Prism Prize award for the Canadian music video winner is Emily Kai Bock for Arcade Fire’s Afterlife. Emily received her award tonight, along with a cheque for $5000, at the Prism Prize Award Reception in Toronto.

“Emily made some truly remarkable videos last year. It says something that two of Emily’s pieces were on the Top Ten Shortlist,” said Prism Prize Founder and Director Louis Calabro. “Ultimately, I think our jurors chose Afterlife because it’s thoughtful and well-paced, and because – frankly – it looks beautiful.”
