Awards from San Jose Cinequest 16th

Over a thousand filmmakers, guests and festival-goers filled the California Theatre in downtown San Jose for the Cinequest 16 closing night gala on Sunday, March 12. Cinequest co-founder Kathleen Powell introduced the jury members to present the awards.

Film critic Steve Rhodes of Internet Reviews announced the winners of the feature competition, including Sören Senn’s KUSSKUSS (Maverick Spirit Winner) and Jan Martin Scharf and Arne Nolting’s WAHRHEIT ODER PFLICHT/TRUTH OR DARE (Best First Feature). Fellow juror Alison Mckee, Film Studies professor in the Department of Television, Radio, Film and Theatre at San José State University, accompanied Rhodes on stage.

Writer Tony Levelle, whose upcoming books on digital cinematography and documentary filmmaking will be published by Michael Wiese Productions, bestowed the documentary and short film honors. Ian Inaba’s AMERICAN BLACKOUT won for Best Documentary Feature. The other jury member was award–winning documentary filmmaker Jan Krawitz (BIG ENOUGH, LITTLE PEOPLE, IN HARM’S WAY), a professor in the Department of Communication at Stanford University.

Powell presented the rest of the award winners, including Sara Johnsen’s VINTERKYSS/KISSED BY WINTER (Global Vision Award) and Nigel Roffe-Barker’s ASYLUM (New Visions Award: Feature). Angeliki Giannakopoulos’ MY CHILD: MOTHERS OF WAR won the Director’s Award, which is not given out each year.
