ASPEN SHORTSFEST – AWARDS

On Sunday, the awards were announced for the 17th Aspen Shortsfest. The entire list can be seen below. Except for the audience award given to COME BACK TO SUDAN, which shared the award with ONE BRIDGE TO THE NEXT, nothing was too surprising. I really liked the message of COME BACK TO SUDAN, but felt the filmmaking – especially from a story standpoint, lacked focus. More understandable, was the award to ONE BRIDGE TO THE NEXT. It’s presents us with Dr. Jim Withers, a street doctor who attended the festival, and who shall be sainted in the next century. He is that good and the film tells his story well. It wasn’t my favorite film of the fest, but I could definitely see why it shared the audience award.
