The 2016 edition of BWFF is now over. What a great time we all had! Thanks to everyone who sponsored, volunteered, showed films, and attended. Some pictures are posted on our Facebook page, and we will try to get a few more up soon.

Audience Favorite: I Had a Bloody Good Time at House Harker, Clayton Cogswell, Director.
Best Feature: The Great Alone, Greg Kohs, Director.
Best Documentary: Ghost Town to Havana, Eugene Corr, Director.
Best Short: Mousse, John Hellberg, Director.
Best Short-Short: Fish, Saman Hosseinpuor, Director.
Loren Savistsky Young Filmmakers's Award: Kayla Briet, Smoke that Travels.
Honorable Mention: Women Outward Bound, Maxine Davis, Director.
