2016 Festival Award Winners Announced!
February 24, 2017
We had such an incredible group of filmmakers at the Nitehawk Shorts Festival this year and think that all are worthy of award recognition. Our jury had a difficult task of determining who would receive the prizes from our sponsors Heard City, Nice Shoes, Panavision, B&H, Vimeo and the Huffington Post Arts & Culture but we’re delighted to announce the films we felt embodied the NSF spirit in under twenty minutes.
