Reva and David Logan Grand Jury Award

WINNER

Royahaye dame sobh: Mehrdad Oskouei
Jury statement: "We are presenting the Grand Jury Award to a film that took us into a world we are not normally privileged to see. Through this deceptively simple look inside a juvenile correctional facility for girls under the age of 18, we were given a window into modern Iranian society. Beautifully crafted with tenderness and enormous respect for the people in it, this film left us with a bracing emotional punch."

Special Jury Mention

Reva and David Logan Grand Jury Award

WINNER

Gleason: Clay Tweel
Jury statement: "We wanted to give a special mention to a film that was fearlessly intimate. It is both a beautiful story about fathers and sons, and a moving portrait of a man and his resilient partner who together courageously confront the challenges of living with ALS."
