A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night: Ana Lily Amirpour, Sheila Vand
"A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT confirms Ana Lily Amirpour as a strong, incredibly original and imaginative new voice in American cinema. She has also given the world its first skateboarding hijab-clad female vampire, wonderfully embodied by actress Shelia Vand, whose performance is spellbinding."

Titli: Kanu Behl
"Kanu Behl's drama of a young man's plot to escape from his violently criminal family is not only an extraordinarily realistic, tensely told tale of Delhi's underworld, but a nuanced, original, clear-sighted look into how human bonds are forged - and the human soul tested - in the dark crucible of money and fear."

WINNER

We Are the Giant: Greg Barker
"WE ARE THE GIANT grapples with perhaps the most difficult question of modernity and so humanely captures the delicate turning point between non-violent activism and armed conflict. The film's power lies not only in sharing powerful stories from the Middle East, but also in showing us that even here in Hawaii, our participation in local activism is a profoundly important exercise to be engaged in."

Haemoo: Sung-bo Shim
"Haemoo is a powerhouse debut from director Shim Sung-bo, who shows enormous potential for raising even further the profile of Asian and Pacific Rim cinema on the world stage. This is a visually arresting, riveting and compelling film, which displays both technical excellence, and a strong emotional core. The film simultaneously addresses universal questions of human nature and morality, and more specific issues, such as corruption, economic inequality and immigration. With its strong commercial appeal, Haemoo is in the position to raise consciousness about human trafficking, its causes and terrible consequences.
