Juried Awards

BEST FEATURE FILM:
The Man Who Loved Yngve
Directed by Stian Kristiansen

An unexpectedly delightful film, The Man Who Loved Yngve tells a compelling and beautifully cinematic coming-of-age story which captures the cynicism and innocence of self-discovery. Stian Kristiansen directed a memorable and fully engaging film with solid storytelling and amazing performances.

FEATURE FILM
HONORABLE MENTION:
I Can't Think Straight
Directed by Shamim Sarif

I Can't Think Straight is a film that needs to be recognized for its complex story and politics. Filmmaker Shamim Sarif is a remarkable storyteller that will continue to push the boundaries of world and social issues.

BEST DOCUMENTARY FILM:
Edie & Thea: A Very Long Engagement
Directed by Gréta Olafsdóttir
and Susan Muska

A timeless and timely love story that transcends being Gay and is truly universal. This deeply intimate portrait of two charming, intelligent women and their life together engages the audience to consider the nature of love, commitment, and the definition of marriage. This movie touched our hearts and brought the entire audience to tears.

BEST SHORT FILM:
Diana
Directed by Aleem Khan

A powerful and expressive portrayal of alienation based on complex identity. This film uniquely tackles multiple challenges - cultural identity, gender identity, sexual orientation, and family relationships - in a single character.

SHORT FILM
HONORABLE MENTION:
Claiming the Title
Directed by Jonathan Joiner
and Robert H. Martin

This film is honored for shedding light on an important part of our combined historical struggle against blatant discrimination and for reminding us that progress is not about winning or losing but about taking courageous, continual, incremental steps.

MOST INNOVATIVE SHORT:
The Apple
Directed by Emilie Jouvet

Honored for transcending our expectations of Queer cinema, The Apple was a visual feast that showed us the sensuality of the forbidden.
