Archives:   A - E   F - N    O - Z    Posters    Who We Are
Every year, every film group and their mothers gives out a set of awards. Every year we try to list as many of these as we can side by side, either to embarrass the hell out of ourselves or to Lord it over all the film student thinkers who "know what is best for you". We don't come from the school of thinking that believes that technical perfection or ultrareality is more important than producing a film that moves or affects you in some way. So, scroll down for the ever expanding list of self important pronouncements by self important people . . .
