- WAXIE MOON IN FALLEN JEWEL Honorably mentioned, dazzlingly bizarre!
This past Sunday brought the close of the 2012 Seattle Lesbian and Gay Film Festival, and with it came the announcement of this year's award-winners. Among the jury's awards:
BEST FEATURE: A MAP FOR A TALK (MAPA PARA CONVERSAR)
Directed by Constanza Fernández
HONORABLE MENTION (FEATURE): WAXIE MOON IN FALLEN JEWEL
Directed by Wes Hurley
BEST DOCUMENTARY: CALL ME KUCHU
Directed by Katherine Fairfax Wright and Malika Zouhali-Worrall
HONORABLE MENTION (DOCUMENTARY): JOBRIATH A.D.
Directed by Kieran Turner
Humongo congratulations to all (I loved the fuck out of both Call Me Kuchu and Jobriath A.D.) but especially to Wes Hurley, Marc Kenison, and the whole Waxie Moon in Fallen Jewel cast and crew. Their film is a delight, and to have it rate so highly among the SLGFF offerings is awesome. (Also, rumor has it the film may have another hometown screening soon, so stay tuned.)
