I am both so happy and so sad. I was wandering around the internet (like you do) and I happened upon this film festival… Awaken! International Spiritual Film Festival: the first ever spiritual film festival in New Jersey, where I’m from. And it happened a month ago and I missed it! I hope that they hold it again next year, but who knows if I’ll even be here then. Either way I wanted to share it with you guys.
I find trolling film festivals a great way to learn about small market films. Unfortunately some of these films never even make it to mainstream theaters or DVD so it is hard to even see them without these festivals. I hope to catch a few of these at some point. It looked like a pretty good bunch of movies.
The winners for the audience choice awards were:
Stranded: I come from a plane that crashed
in the mountains.
Documentary (up to 1 hour):
The Cats of Mirikitani
The Peace Tree
