2017 Wrap-Up and Award Winners

Our third annual festival took place last weekend in Tucson, Arizona and was a huge success. We screened 40 films and audiences got to chat with 8 filmmakers during Q&A panels.

A surprise celebrity guest even came all the way from Pakistan! We got to meet Taher Shah who is known for his viral video “Eye to Eye.”

Ballots from audiences and judges have been tallied, and we’re thrilled to announce the winners. It was an exciting competition due to the high caliber of submissions we received. We look forward to our next festival with even higher expectations!
