The Winners Are!
by Becky Tan

There were 17 prizes, many with juries, some chosen by the audiences. Winners came from the USA, the Ukraine, Great Britain, Australia, Germany, Denmark, France, Armenia, Israel, and the Czech Republic. There is an International section, but international films also show up in other capacities such as short films of famous directors or the category Sports or the three-minute competition. I am not sure what the requirements are for showing in the international section or somewhere else.
