Special Jury Prize: Another Earth, Mike Cahill
Special Jury Prize: Felicity Jones in Like Crazy, Drake Doremus

Audience Award: Circumstance, Maryam Keshavarz

To check winners in all categories as well as in documentaries and shorts go here. Think that will try to watch the love story in Like Crazy “about a British student that falls for Jacob only to be separated from him when she’s banned from USA after overstaying her visa” as seems Felicity Jones performance is on the very good side.

Most films are too depressing for me to be interested in watching, but obviously Circumstance is must be seen for me and know will watch Happy, Happy that have been following movie during its travels in the fest circuit. Well, not bad this year as I have movies from this fest that are interesting enough to try to watch them eventually. Another must be seen film from this year is Pariah by Dee Rees.
