The Homer Theatre has announced the winners of the ninth annual Homer Documentary Film Festival. The winners are:
• Forget-Me-Not Audience Award: “Samsara.”
“By far the audience favorite. This magnificent visual-ensemble was a truly Homer type of film,” said Mac Sutton for the theater.
• Golden Puffin Jury Prize Award: “House I Live In”
“Best overall documentary, a very well-constructed and edited film loaded with painfully true information; a real eye-opener,” Sutton said.
• Eagle Award for Best Director: “Waiting Room”
“From up and coming documentary director Peter Nicks, this was a raw, fast-paced look at 24 hours in an emergency room; excellent cinematography,” Sutton said.
