And You Thought the Golden Space Needle Was Bad…

posted by on October 17 at 9:49 AM

Portland’s Northwest Film & Video Festival has just handed out its jury awards. Among the winners are Seattle’s James Longley, in the category of… um, “The Regarding The Pain of Others Award” (for the truly extremely empathetic Sari’s Mother).

The other awards are as follows:

THE LIFE IS MORE SUBTLE THAN WE THINK AWARD Creamery Birds-Director Brian Libby, Portland, OR

By Modern Measure-Director Matthew Lessner, Nehalem, OR.

And, my personal favorite,

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL TROUBLED ENERGY AWARD Patterns II and Patterns III-Jamie Travis, Vancouver, BC.

You can get a copy of the award-winning Sari’s Mother as an extra on the Iraq in Fragments DVD, available here.
