Throughout the festival (October 4 – 7) audiences were treated to an array of powerful and inspiring films with filmmaker Q & A’s after most screenings. Malcolm McDowell served as the Master of Ceremonies for the awards brunch, with highlights including screenwriter Alex Kurtzman presenting an Enrichment Through Education Award to James Hosney, a special tribute to late cinematographer Laszlo Kovacs, and the Lifetime Achievement Award to Academy Award® winning cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond.
