We chose to honor this incredible selection of films for their brave, innovative filmmaking, and unique, compelling stories. This year’s award-winners moved EOFF audiences and connected with the festival’s artist-driven, DIY ethos. Hats off to this collection of filmmakers for making such powerful films with such minimal resources. We are honored to screen your work.
BEST FEATURE = ONLY THE YOUNG BEST SHORT = (NOTES ON) BIOLOGY BEST PERFORMANCE = HUGO ARMSTRONG, OK GOOD BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY = NANDAN RAO, THE INTERNATIONAL SIGN FOR CHOKING MOST LIKELY TO WIN A HOT DOG EATING CONTEST = FINDING TRUELOVE
THAT’S A WRAP
EOFF2013 was hands down our best year to date! Thanks to all who made this year a success. We saw dramatic increase in attendance, filmmaker interaction, and regional participation. Bars were hopping, hotel room rooms were filled, theatres were pumping us with artistry and perspective, and the Art Center at the Old Library held the most people in her bosom at once since, perhaps, the day the Old Carnegie Library gave rise a century ago.
This is a chance for you to say thanks with a small donation to help fuel the EOFF engines. We need to write grants and explore expansion opportunities while the iron is hot. If you love EOFF and want to see us take this event to the next level…
EOFF was recognized in the premiere outlet (or periodical or something more astute) for independent filmmaking. Pretty cool to see our hometown festival growing and catching the attention of people who know film festivals.
We are activley combing through the collected media over the three day event. Check out our ever growing collectiom of media from this year’s event. Photos, music, video, skype Q & A’s.
