Audience Award Winners!

As a relatively small, niche festival, we like to think that EVERY film in our program is winner! We do, however, appreciate the feedback we get from the audience. Each year we engage the public attending and have them vote on their favorites. The categories are withing Narrative Feature, Documentary Features, and Short.  Here are this year’s winners:

East Side Sushi – Audience Choice Award- Narrative Feature

The Hand That Feeds  Audience Choice Award- Documentary Feature

Ojos Que No Ven/ Eyes That Don’t See– Audience Choice Award- Short Film

If you missed it, keep an eye out for them. They will certainly be in theaters, on demand, or or available for download soon enough. Follow us on Facebook or Twitter where we inform you fo these updates from the filmmakers.
