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.
