And the winners are... SLGFF announces jury and audience awards

The Seattle Lesbian & Gay Film Festival (SLGFF) ended its 17th run October 21 with the announcement of its Jury and Audience Awards. Deeply personal stories, laugh-out-loud comedies, timely documentaries, poignant dramas, premieres with big-name stars, and cutting edge works from local and emerging talent all highlighted this year's programming. SLGFF is produced by Three Dollar Bill Cinema, an award-winning Seattle nonprofit.

'It made me proud to see the Seattle Lesbian & Gay Film Festival bring together such diverse crowds with our film programs and special events,' said Jason Plourde, Three Dollar Bill Cinema's executive director. 'Our 11-day film festival became a special place for all people to view and discuss LGBT stories from around the world, and that included Queer women of color, heterosexual religious conservatives, and high school Gay-Straight Alliances from across the region. And with Referendum 74 so close in the polls, it was especially important to provide this forum and increase visibility for our community.'

The festival had five sold-out shows - notably the Centerpiece screening of Cloudburst, starring Olympia Dukakis and Brenda Fricker - and packed venues throughout the festival, particularly for audience favorites such as the opening-night comedy Struck by Lightning, the beautiful spectacle of Swan Lake in 3D, and the local celebrity-studded Waxie Moon in Fallen Jewel.

JURY AWARDS
Best Feature: A Map for a Talk (Mapa Para Conversar), directed by Constanza Fernández. A visually stunning film with great life symbolism without being overdone, exploring relationships with beautiful honesty. Honorable mention: Waxie Moon in Fallen Jewel, directed by Wes Hurley. A celebration of Seattle, featuring the most glittering of its emerald side. We can't wait to see what Wes and Waxie will do next.

Best Documentary: Call Me Kuchu, directed by Katherine Fairfax Wright and Malika Zouhali-Worrall. A beautifully crafted, honest, and important document, reminding us that the denial of any single human's rights is a global crime that affects us all. Honorable mention: Jobriath A.D., directed by Kieran Turner. What a treasured gift to discover this extraordinarily talented, charismatic '70s rock artist, who was truly at the vanguard of a musical genre and the Gay truth movement.

Best Short Film: Tsuyako, directed by Mitsuyo Miyazaki. For its powerful narrative and dynamic editing set in an unexpected time and place, yielding an unforgettable film of tremendous emotional resonance.

Most Innovative Short Film: The Maiden and the Princess, directed by Ali Scher. For its timely and buoyant update of the traditional fairy tale. Honorable mention: Alone With You, directed by Doug Ischar. A striking experimental short that layers disparate source material into a provocative and engaging whirlwind.

AUDIENCE AWARDS
Favorite Narrative Film: I Do, directed by Glenn Gaylord. Favorite Documentary Feature: Call Me Kuchu, directed by Katherine Fairfax Wright and Malika Zouhali-Worrall. Favorite Gay Short Film: The Devotion Project: More Than Ever, directed by Antony Osso. Favorite Lesbian Short Film: Polaroid Girl, directed by April Maxey. Favorite Transgender Short Film: Transforming Family, directed by Rémy Huberdeau. 'We congratulate all the Jury and Audience Award winners and thank every filmmaker who was a part of the 17th Annual Seattle Lesbian & Gay Film Festival,' concluded Keith Bacon, Three Dollar Bill Cinema's lead programmer.
