2014 Film Festival Award Winners:
Best Feature Length Film
Saving Face ( 40 minutes, U.S.A./Pakistan)
Every year in Pakistan, many women are
victimized by brutal acid attacks. Plastic
surgeon Dr. Mohammad Jawad left his
prominent London practice to return to his
home country and help the victims of such
attacks. Two of these women are victims of
brutal acid attacks by their husbands. Both
attempt to bring their assailant to justice
and move on with their lives with the
help of NGOs, sympathetic policymakers,
politicians, support groups, other victims
and Dr. Jawad.
Best Short Film
Miedo (Fear)( 17 minutes, Guatemala,
Elisa Fernanda Pirir is the director and writer,
and Miedo is her story.
In 2007, when I was 16 and moved to
Norway, I was diagnosed with psychosis.
I never dared to tell anyone. I was
embarrassed and scared. In 2011 the
doctors found out that my problems were
caused by something physical. My friends
and family were so happy, not because my
symptoms were different, but because I
didn’t have a psychiatric diagnosis.
Best Avant Garde Film
Out of Step ( 6 minutes, U.S.A.)
Out of Step is a high-definition digital video
featuring dance interpretations, original
music and audio recordings of the personal
stories of four female veterans dealing with
the fog of war. The film gives us a glimpse
into the emotional journey of four young
women from idealistic military recruit, to
coping with PTSD, to healing and working
for peace in a chaotic world.
