Homer Theatre announces Doc Fest awards


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.
