The Big Sky Documentary Film Festival announced its winning films early this morning, and weekend screening times for the honorees. So, without further ado, the envelope please ...
Feature Film Competition: Chasing Ice, directed by Jeff Orlowski.
Word from the jurors: "Through a patient and thoughtful filmmaking approach, the director vividly captures the power and awe of the glaciers falling apart. As they recede into the ocean, the glaciers cry out, warning us of the peril that our planet is in."
Mini-Doc Competition: Mr. Smith's Peach Seeds, directed by Stewart Copeland.
Word from the jurors: "beautifully realized portrait of Tennessee folk artist Roger Smith."
