And, finally, the audience has its say. Following my posting of the juried awards for the films screened at the 2016 Spokane International Film Festival, now come the audience awards (courtesy of SpIFF co-director Adam Boyd). They are as follows:
Best Animated Short: "If I Was God"
Best Documentary: "Landfill Harmonic"
Best Feature: "My Internship in Canada"
Best Short: "Marty"
Best International Short: "Crevette"
Best of the NW Short: "The Mobile Stripper"
Best of the NW Feature: "The Glamour and the Squalor"
By the way, Boyd reports that Jason McKee's short "Marty" received 93 percent of the votes for its screening. McKee also was the jury pick for Best of NW Filmmaker.
