2014 San Diego Film Festival Awards Winner List

Where the Road Runs Out San Diego Film Festival 2014 Winner

This year’s San Diego Film Festival was bigger and better than ever before. With big studio features and other buzzed about indie pictures, it will be interesting to see how the SDFF group can top themselves next year. The winners of the 13th Annual San Diego Film Festival have just been announced. Check out the full winners list after the break.

As my second year attending the San Diego Film Festival, I have to say that I rather enjoyed most of the features I saw. From the films that I was able to see, surprisingly none of them received any recognition. I’m a little shocked that Whiplash received no love – but then again it was one of the two “Secret” movies that was announced when our butts hit the seats. It was by far the best movie I had seen over the long weekend – my review.

Of the movies who have gained recognition, I had heard great things about Schimbare, the foreign film competition winner. I haven’t heard great things about The Imitation Game, but if more folks had heard about Whiplash, I would wager to bet it would have one the audience Gala award.
