As awards are announced, it allows all of us to reflect on the past days of the festival–all the films we viewed both in and out of competition–and what has really stuck with us. I’m especially proud of the diversity and artistic excellence represented by this year’s program, which is exemplified by this year’s competition winners” stated Festival Director Jean Lauer.
