Presentation of the SEEfest 2016 awards took place on May 5 at the Ahrya Fine Arts theater in Beverly Hills.

Best Feature Film, Grand Jury Prize - Bridging the Borders Award went to the Serbian-Croatian-Bosnian co-production A Good Wife, directorial debut by veteran Serbian actress Mirjana Karanovic, who also bagged an award for Best First Film. Dealing with a sensitive subject of war crimes, the film tells the story of an everyday woman confronting the truth about her husband’s war time secrets.
