MassIFF Announces its 2015 Award Nominees

August 18, 2015

 

Now in its fifth run The Massachusetts Independent Film Festival will again honor distinguished filmmakers screening this year. The filmmakers and their films are given recognition based on their creative spirit particularly in the craft of storytelling and willingness to engage in thought-provoking ideas and issues.

 

Nominees are grouped in the following categories: Best Feature, Best Short, Best Documentary, Best Actor Feature, Best Actor Short, Best Actress Feature, Best Actress Short, Best Cinematography, Best Editing, Best Director Feature, Best Director Short, Best Writing, and Best New England Film. The winners will be chosen by our panel of judges who are respected Boston-area film critics.

 

MassIFF would like to thank our sponsors: Otto Pizza, Resolution Rentals, Tasty Burger, and 1550 WNTN. We would also like to thank all the filmmakers who submitted their work. MassIFF had a record number of submissions this year which made the acceptance process especially difficult.

 

Please join us at Tasty Burger in Harvard Square at 8:00pm on the 29th for our after party where winners will be announced.
