2019 Prize Winners

Congratulations to our award winning films for 2019.

This year brought us an abundance of captivating films that pushed the boundaries of creative filmmaking and shone an important light on the issues, struggles, and lives that exemplify this year’s theme, #StoriesOfCourage. Some straddled the boundaries of narrative and documentary, entering the realm of lyrical poetry. We even were honored to host a 3D virtual reality experience through #oculusvrforgood.

We are incredibly proud of all the films we shared with audiences this year, and the talented filmmakers behind each of them. It was difficult to make a choice among them, but here are our jury prizes for #sjff2019.
