Fraud: Dean Fleischer-Camp
"Breaking boundaries of documentation and authorship, creating a truly disturbing viewing experience, with its fractured sense of reality and deliberately rough cinematic language - "Fraud" can be seen as an insightful and dark prophecy for the future of Documentary film. Through a fictionalized story of an isolated American family, "Fraud" presents a stark, critical vision of consumerist society."

Depth of Field Competition - Honorable Mention

WINNER

The Challenge: Yuri Ancarani
"With its insightful cinematography, subtle observational style, "The Challenge" gives the viewer an intimate look into an otherwise exclusive world of young Qatari Sheiks. The filmmaker manages to depict a society of extreme excess yet still obsessed with tradition."

Best International Film - Honorable Mention

WINNER

I Am Not Your Negro: Raoul Peck
"For its ability to make a complex historical issue both accessible and immediate, for its dedicated approach to its subject and the way it builds a coherent story from varied mediums. This film has the capacity to illuminate the ways in which many conflicts arise from our inability to truly see the other."
