FANTASTIC FEST announces Jury & Audience Awards for the Fest!

Hey folks, Harry here with the winners of the Jury and the Audience Awards at this year's FANTASTIC FEST. So - you want to hear what the absolute cream of the crop was? Who gave the performances we were buzzing about? Well here ya go... I'm actually really surprised that Eli won the Audience Award for Director, he totally deserved it, but he couldn't be here at the fest, due to his predilection for cock rings at those Sitges Beaches. (Long Story) And Gulager was so well loved by the fest for his post film chatter and just what all that guy had to go through to make his film. But like I said, you'll probably agree with the audience once you see HOSTEL. The only award I wish was here, was "FILM MOST DESERVING OF WORLD WIDE DISTRIBUTION: NIGHT OF THE LIVING DORKS" You see, it may not be the best film in terms of dramatics or genre... but this film would DEFINITELY catch a cool cult audience if handled correctly. It really is that cool. Anyway - here's how the votes measured up. Can't wait for next year!
