SIFF SIFF 2007: Jury Awards
posted by June 17 at 13:55 PMon
The complete list of awards is up at the SIFF website (thanks, stinkbug).
A few quick notes. The awards this year were made by Joey DeCamp of the Chihuly Studio, and they are hideous. I failed to bring a digital camera, but imagine a greenish phallus covered in bulging cysts.
The Grand Jury choices are all pretty solid—it looks like we starred all the winners that were screened in advance. The juries tapped Sons for the New Director Award (Charles Mudede really liked it); for New American Cinema, Shotgun Stories (which I quite liked, and mentioned in my introduction to this year’s SIFF Notes); for documentary, Out of Time (which I enjoyed, though I don’t know that I’d compliment the cinematography as profusely as the designated juror did).
The Special Jury prizes are a little more dubious, but not terrible, which is all you can ask.
