DC Shorts – The Winners

Perhaps due to the plentiful amounts of bacon, the Award Brunch is my favorite part of the DC Shorts Film Festival. Filmmakers, staff and honored guests gather at Clyde’s of Gallery Place for one final event.

Awards are handed out in multiple categories by festival director Jon Gann, who always manages to tear up during the ceremony. Here are this year’s winners:

Audience Favorites

Audience Special Recognition

Outstanding Local Film (presented by KvM Rentals)

Outstanding Cinematography (presented by FujiFilm)

Outstanding Use of Food (presented by Whole Foods)

Outstanding 1st Time Director

Festival Director’s Choice

Filmmaker’s Choice

You can still see all the great films of the festival as DC Shorts runs until September 18. Check the schedule for screening times, including FREE lunch shows and special pink and sexy shorts programs. And don’t miss the Closing Bash on Saturday, September 17 at the Atlas Performing Arts Center.
