2006 Awards



PROVIDENCE, R.I. (May 10, 2006) – After careful deliberation, the top prize winners for the 2006 Roving Eye Documentary Film Festival were announced today. Prizes include the Audience Choice Award, Festival Award, Best Cinematography Award, “Emerging Eye” First Time Director’s Award, “Student Eye” Documentary Award, and an Honorable Mention.

“It was no easy task to pick the winners this year. Probably the easiest award to determine was the Audience Choice Award; we let the moviegoers pick their favorite documentary,” commented the festival’s Producing Director, Adam Short. “The quality of films we received was excellent and it was difficult trying to decide which ones deserved to win. But in the end our judges managed to select several films that really stood out and really impressed us.”
