We Have a Winner!

Our Cinema Falls 2017 Shorts Fest ballots have been tabulated, and we are pleased to announce the winner of our Audience Award. We had a full house of seasoned movie fans, journalists, educators, and new guests with every one of our eight selections winning votes – indicating very strong program and competition!

This year’s top honor is awarded to WATU WOTE (ALL OF US) directed by Katja Benrath of Germany, and based on true events.
Film Summary: For a decade Kenya has been targeted by terrorist attacks of the Al-Shabaab. An atmosphere of anxiety and mistrust between Muslims and Christians is growing. In December 2015, Muslim bus passengers showed that solidarity can prevail.

Congratulations to our winner – and thank you for your support of short films and filmmakers!
