2010 Silverdocs Audience Awards

 

The AFI-Discovery Channel Silverdocs Documentary Festival Audience Award Winners were announced on Sunday evening as the seven-day doc fest came to an end after screening more than 100 films from over 50 countries. More than 25,000 attendees and 1000 film and media professionals participated in the week-long doc love fest. 

The Audience Award for a feature goes to MEN WHO SWIM directed by Dylan Williams.  The film follows a British man living in Sweden on the brink of turning 40, who combats his mid-life crisis by joining a men's synchronized swimming team. Composed of middle-aged men from all walks of life, what started as an escapist hobby evolves into a committed brotherhood as the team competes at the unofficial All Male World Championship in Milan.

 

The Audience Award for a short went to BYE BYE NOW directed by Aideen O'Sullivan and Ross Whitaker. The film offers a charming look at the gradual disappearance of phone booths in Ireland. With the advent of modern technology, the phone booth has all but vanished all over the world. In a loving tribute to this soon-to-be relic of the past, the film is a nostalgic reminder of yesteryear.
